For New or Modified Programs: Assessment Plan Approval Form

For new or existing program proposals in Curriculog, please follow the steps below to obtain approval of the Assessment Plan.

Step 1: Use the Assessment Plan Template or the Assessment of Learning Report Template (as indicated below) to develop your assessment plan if you are submitting a new program proposal or if you are making changes to an existing program that will impact your current assessment plan.  Contact the Assessment Office ( to discuss the Assessment Plan for the new or modified program. See below to determine the appropriate template to use to document the plan, if applicable: 

New programs: Please use this Assessment Plan Template (new programs only) to record the outcomes and measures.

Non-accredited existing programs: Please use the AY 2023-2024 Assessment of Learning Report template to update your assessment plan (in the sections for re sults, improvements, and trends, just mark "N/A"). Therefore, when it is time to report results (for the previous academic year), the outcomes and measures will already be included in the template. Include all assessment instruments in the Appendix.*

Accredited programs: The self-study may serve as documentation of assessment and continuous improvement, as long as the self-study reports annual assessment results and strategies for improvement of student learning. Use of the above templates is not required, but the assessment process should be adjusted to align with any curriculum changes.

Step 2: Only after the assessment plan has been reviewed, modified as needed, and approved, complete the fields and the summary description on the Assessment Plan Approval Form.

Step 3: Follow the instructions on the Assessment Plan Approval Form to obtain the approval signature of either the Director of Academic Assessment (for new programs and existing non-accredited programs) or your college Associate Dean for Assessment (for accredited programs). 

Step 4: Upload the signed Assessment Plan Approval Form into Curriculog. 

Please plan accordingly and allow 1-2 weeks for the above process to occur. Please email with questions.

Thank you for your commitment to assessment and continuous improvement at KSU!
