Peer Review Process

Peer Review Process

The University Assessment Committee (UAC), is a presidentially-appointed committee, designed to foster communication between all colleges, schools, and divisions that facilitate and assess student learning.  The UAC works to promote an integrated culture of assessment, consistent with the Creighton mission.

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's 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
