About

The Office of Assessment website is designed to provide information about assessment conducted at Peru State College focused on improving the student experience (e.g. student learning, satisfaction, engagement, campus climate) and 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 cannot locate the appropriate resources on the site, one-on-one consultation is also available.
