In compliance with SACSCOC Principles of Accreditation 8.2.a and 8.2.b as well as Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Academic Policy AP-08, the University requires an annual academic assessment process in which degree program faculty identify expected learning and performance outcomes, assess the extent to which they achieve the outcomes, and provide evidence of improvement based on analysis of the results. Every program is afforded a mechanism by which to make a request for financial resources through the university budgeting process to facilitate needed improvements.


Degree program faculty create annual assessment plans, document assessment findings and create assessment action plans. This documentation is submitted online through a common template. The Assessment Committee reviews documentation and provides feedback to the degree program faculty.
