Please be patient…we are revising the Assessment webpages.

The Office of Institutional Research and Planning (OIRP) works with academic departments/programs and administrative departments to help build a strong foundation in assessment by developing Assessment Plans that lead to ensuring student success and analyzing data necessary for external accrediting bodies. 

We aid programs and departments with the completion Annual Reports and during Program Review.  We offer professional development in assessment to faculty several times during the academic year and offer a variety of workshops. 

Fitchburg State University programs and departments utilize a variety of direct and indirect measures to ensure student success on our campus.  Assessment is a campus-wide activity.
