Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther report

Abstract

This report features the assessment work being done at Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs). Comparisons are made between assessment activities at MSIs and those underway at Predominantly White Institutions (PWIs) as well as those at different types of MSIs such as Tribal Colleges, Historically Black, Hispanic-Serving, and others. Four main findings are discussed including the internal use of assessment data at MSIs, using assessment data for improvement, different assessment approaches at different types of MSIs, and subcategories of MSIs' use of assessment to address different institutional needs and interests. Implications are presented for understanding assessment activities in MSIs, and how such understandings can help advance assessment efforts at all postsecondary institutions.
