UC Blue Ash College


We invite you to enter the conversation about how we know our students are learning and growing in our classrooms through the questions we ask in our departments and programs. Our hope is that you will talk to your Academic Assessment Committee representative, be an active part of the conversation about assessing student learning, participate in creating improvements based on the assessment result, and engage the data that drive inquisitiveness about who our students are, how they learn, and where they go from here.
