"Assessment is thinking about what you're doing and doing it better." - Professor John Riker

"There are two aspects of the current assessment process that we find especially valuable. First, it poses one of the only mechanisms of accountability for department-wide assessment...the data produced and the reflection it induces have been invaluable. It is because of these data that our department has spearheaded certain discussions around [part of our] curriculum, which otherwise may have taken longer to initiate. Second, it collects physical data that informs fact-based decisions around curriculum changes rather than simply using instinct or intuition." - Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, 2019
