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 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. 

Note for Accredited Programs: Accredited programs who have an approved exception to the KSU AoL reporting process may use their self-study assessment plan documentation, as long as the self-study reports annual assessment results and strategies for improvement of student learning. Use of the above Assessment Plan Template is not required, but the assessment plan documented in the self-study files 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, non-accredited programs, and accredited programs following the AoL reporting process) or your college Associate Dean for Assessment (for accredited programs with an approved exception to the KSU AoL reporting process). 

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!
