Why do I need to complete the annual assessment report?

Kent State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). In alignment with HLC accreditation, all academic programs (generally broken down by both major and degree level) must submit a programmatic assessment report every year. Annual assessment reports are reviewed and maintained by Kent State’s Office of Accreditation, Assessment and Learning. Academic programs should use the annual assessment report as a way to identify areas for continuous improvement and to ensure quality.
