West Chester University engages in assessment to ensure the continued quality and relevance of its programs and services and to conform to national and regional standards for high quality educational programs and institutions as laid out by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), as well as numerous specialized accrediting bodies in the difference academic disciplines.

Assessment helps our faculty deliver the quality education our students deserve. Assessing learning leads to more clearly defined syllabi, better grading strategies that accurately measure a student's progress, and improved teaching techniques and teaching evaluations that help each academic department determine the best strategies to reach their students. In this way our faculty will continue to be regionally and nationally recognized for their excellence in teaching.
