The Office of Academic Assessment has a good-sized “library” of resources on student learning outcomes assessment for degree programs through institution-wide institutional effectiveness. The books, journal articles, and journals are available for you to use. To “check-out” a book, journal article, or journal contact Terry Senne at tsenne@twu.edu  or (940) 898-3029, and I will send the item(s) to you via campus mail. Or, you are welcome to come “browse” the collection itself which is housed in my office, ACT 1010. Please take advantage of these available resources as you continue to improve student learning and program quality.
