Assessment guidelines at Fort Lewis College

Student success is at the heart of all assessment activities at Fort Lewis College. Our Assessment Coordinator works closely with academic and student engagement departments in and out of the classroom to continuously improve student experiences using various assessment methods.

The Assessment Coordinator and Assessment Committee support faculty, staff, and administrators in developing and implementing effective assessment techniques. We also provide ongoing assistance to meet accreditation requirements and ensure state and federal regulations compliance. Fort Lewis College has maintained its accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission since 1958.
