This paper focuses on a change from an input model of student learning to an assessment model as a means of measuring student learning outcomes and developing more viable programs to serve the learner. Important to the development of assessment plans is the term “program effectiveness.” The effectiveness of any program is measured by how well it facilitates student achievement and successful learning. The process of any change initiative is conducive to program viability. Assessment in higher education is designed to measure the effectiveness of programs in producing student learning within a deliberately designed curriculum. Steven Crow, Executive Director of the Higher Learning Commission, stated, “Assessment of student academic achievement is fundamental for all organizations that place student learning at the center of their educational endeavors” (Hardy, pp. 3-4), a worthy goal for all program and curriculum planners.
