Defining and assessing Educational Goals

The Educational Goals Assessment Process is integrated with the External Review cycle at SFU. For the EG Assessment Process, academic units engage in four main activities during a seven-year assessment cycle: defining their educational goals, collecting data, analyzing data, and taking action. This website is intended to support units by providing informational resources, examples, and templates that can be adapted and customized to their unique needs. This website is not intended to be prescriptive or to otherwise detract from what is most appropriate for each unit.
