Internally, CARS has made shifts to enable more client partnerships where there is high energy for positively impacting student learning at JMU. To provide new services and invest in partnerships, we are making a few changes to academic degree program assessment, notably:

  • Assessment reports will still be due on June 1st to CARS.
  • Beginning in 2024 we will no longer provide formative feedback using the APT Rubric. The tool is still available as a reference for best practice in assessment.
  • CARS will offer new services including focus groups and educational research projects. Our goal is to consult with partners on projects they are energized about that have a good chance at improving the educational experience at JMU.
  • More details can be found on our Services page under Program Assessment
