Abstract

Schools of Business are diverse in their approach to meeting the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) standards for assurance of learning. Developing a comprehensive assessment plan that includes a process for managing, collecting, analyzing, and reporting student-level assessment data is a daunting task. Assuring the process is faculty driven is even more difficult. Through the creation and evolution of a relatively simple Microsoft Access database, this University was able to develop, implement and manage an assessment plan that meets the AACSB assurance of learning standards, engages the majority of faculty, facilitates the data collection process, generates real-time student-outcome data and trends curriculum improvements over time.
