Welcome to the Office of Institutional Research and Assessment

This website was designed to provide information about assessment conducted at Peru State College focused on improving the student experience (i.e. student learning, satisfaction, engagement, campus climate) as well to disseminate pertinent institutional data, particularly student outcomes.  It also serves as a resource for faculty and staff for developing and conducting assessment.  If you can’t locate the appropriate resources on the site, one-on-one consultation is also available.
