Assessment Management System


June 30th program assessment reporting deadline suspended for 2020 — Given the extraordinary challenges we are all facing during this dynamic and challenging time, Penn State has suspended the June 30th assessment reporting deadline for the 2019-2020 academic year.  Programs that have already collected assessment data or were otherwise prepared to submit, and would still like to do so, can still do so. The AMS Training web page has self-help resources and information on scheduled trainings. Do not hesitate to reach out to your assessment liaison for assistance. Please note: this suspension applies to non-accredited academic programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and certificate levels.  Programs with disciplinary accreditation will need to seek guidance from their external agencies; we’re happy to help.

Penn State uses Nuventive Improve for its Assessment Management System (AMS). The AMS is an online tool that supports University-wide learning outcomes assessment, strategic planning, and Middle States accreditation. Academic programs use the AMS to document their Program Learning Objectives (PLOs), create curriculum maps, plan program assessment efforts, and report results. Strategic planning units use the system to document unit-level plans and align plans with University-level outcomes.
