Admissions & Aid
Student learning is at the heart of each of Brooklyn College’s educational programs. Understanding how well students are learning through meaningful assessment methods is central to maintaining the quality of our educational offerings. As part of Brooklyn College’s commitment to best practices in this realm, the Educational Research and Assessment (ERA) office has provided tools to support learning outcomes assessment and faculty efforts in this area. We also work with the school deans in fulfilling their assessment responsibilities for their schools.
In addition, administrative effectiveness is crucial to the operation of the college. The ERA office works closely with divisional vice presidents and senior vice presidents, as well as administrative staff, to ensure proper assessment of the college’s Administrative, Educational, and Student Support (AES) units. The ERA office has provided tools to support AES staff and administration in outcomes assessment.

CUNY Expectations for Assessment (PDF)
Faculty-driven academic assessment is required on two levels.
Program-level assessment examines student learning outcomes for each degree program over all five schools at Brooklyn College:
General education assessment examines broader, college-wide student learning outcomes across the curriculum. This assessment is conducted in Pathways-approved courses and is led by the Faculty Council General Education Committee and General Education coordinator.
Administrative unit-driven AES assessment is required of all units within the five administrative divisions at Brooklyn College. The units are assessed on administrative outcomes determined by the unit and/or division and on student learning outcomes for any student-facing units.
