Assessment is any effort to gather, analyze, and interpret evidence which describes institutional, departmental, divisional, or agency effectiveness (Upcraft & Schuh, 1996).
While many of the processes in assessment and research may be similar, there are two very important distinctions:
- Assessment guides good practice and typically has implications for only one institution.
- Research guides theory and tests concepts, and has broader implications for higher education (Erwin, 1991).
