Students:  What's in it for you?  Why should you participate in assessment?

Your participation will help Macalester gauge its performance in helping you develop critical skills, and direct college resources to support what works.

Macalester’s assessment program provides meaningful insight not only into program performance, but also into the fulfillment of our mission.

An important part of effective assessment is to achieve universal student participation.  Last year, 96% of first year students took part in Assessment Day.  Higher participation rates mean better, more reliable results.  Thank you!
