The assessment team now provides assistance to all units, which can range from designing a quick opinion poll, to summarizing student residence hall/apartment experiences, to conducting advanced statistical analysis and producing professional research for presentation and publication. Regardless, evidence-based decision-making enables us to improve the on campus Aggie experience.
