What & Why We Assess

In English Language Programs, we develop our own assessments. These tools are designed to help us identify students’ needs and match them to the best resources for the development of their English language skills.

The Graduate School and departments determine assessment requirements, and advisors and administrators use assessment results to inform their advice to students.
