This page includes 1) an overview of the data collection tools we are using, 2) how our data maps to the University Learning Goals, 3) the timeline we have in place for implementation.
Data Collecting Tools: Working from our goals down to our programs, we integrated direct and indirect assessment measures into the following programs in the last two years: Carroll Faith Communities, Manresa Retreat, the Eight Day Silent Retreat, March for Life, Crossroads retreat, First Year retreat, Becoming evening of reflection, Leadership Dinner (which includes a host of leadership positions including interfaith and liturgy), and the Immersion Program.
Campus Ministry’s goals map to the University Goals in the following ways: Mapping Campus Ministry Learning Goals to University Learning Goals
Timeline: Campus Ministry assessed Goals 2 and 5 in the 2015-2016 academic year; Goals 4 and 6 in the 2016-2017 year (in addition to Goals 2, 5); and Goals 1 and 3 in the 2017-2018 academic year (in addition to Goals 2, 5, 4, 6). We began with a trial year for each goal and corrected our assessment measures after that trial year. In 2018-2019 we moved to assessing 2 goals per year.
