Departments and programs that offer majors are responsible for reporting on assessment outcomes related to the major. The department/program is required to meet annually to discuss progress on their departmental goals, assessed by examining results from the department's tool(s) used for assessment. (This meeting might be the same meeting held to discuss General Education Assessment.) Although there are a variety of types of tools departments use to assess their individual goals (e.g., standardized tests, portfolios, student survey responses), the most commonly used assessment tool is the Senior Exercise. The department chair fills out an assessment report that results from this meeting. This assessment report is included with the department's annual report due on June 1 each year.
