The Office of Institutional Effectiveness at SUNY Potsdam believes that Institutional Assessment activities must be grounded in sound research strategies and that the primary objective of assessment is to produce information that can be used for decision making and institutional improvement.
In many ways, the following information represents a "work in progress" as we transition towards an ultimate technology using data dashboards with key performance indicators. In providing the information on this website, we are striving for simplicity and clarity in communication of institutional assessment results. As you use these data to inform strategic planning, decision-making and resource allocation, and you have further questions regarding the validity, reliability, confidence intervals, tests of significance or other psycho-metrics related to the assessment tools used, please do not hesitate to contact the Office of Institutional Effectiveness for specifics.
