The purpose of academic assessment is to improve the overall educational experience at DCB. This is achieved through assessment activities based on institutional values that aim to produce relevant and functional data for aligning curricular design, course content, and pedagogical approaches with DCB’s mission and values. The primary objective of the assessment program is to establish a practice of action research that informs planning and results in tangible improvements for students.
