Peer Review Process

Peer Review Process

One charge of the UAC is an evaluation process that allows the institution to review and ensure quality assurance for all degree programs, majors and certificate programs; the quality of program assessment of student learning is overseen by the Peer Review subcommittee.

The Peer Review Committee offers assistance to enhance programmatic assessment efforts and annually provides feedback to programs, colleges and schools’ annual assessment reports.  Specifically, the peer reviewers evaluate each program's: 

  • Learning Outcomes/Objectives
  • Assessment Measures/Plan
  • Assessment Findings (data collection and analysis and conclusions and communications)
  • Continuous Improvement Plan


View Peer Review Assessment Rubric, which includes definition of components, assessment findings, and system references.

Peer reviewers work as a team of two. Initially, each member of the peer review team reads the program assessment reports and take their own notes based on the rubric. Next, the team works to reconcile their notes and complete rubrics for the assessment reports in Taskstream. Each program assessment review, with complete reports and information, can take from 1 ˝ to 2 hours to complete which may require two to three meetings for the team.  Training will be provided for all peer reviewers.
