The Center for Educational Assessment (CEA) supports UCLA’s commitment to continuously improve undergraduate teaching and learning, and facilitates the campus’ responsiveness to new state and federal expectations for documenting educational effectiveness. In this context, CEA provides comprehensive institutional support to help faculty identify workable assessment strategies that facilitate the development of academic programs, quality of instruction, student learning, internal and external grant funding, and research publications. Through partnerships with administrators and researchers, on and off campus, CEA also serves as a resource for data and analyses that inform policy and planning while supporting accreditation review processes. Core to CEA’s mission is providing consultative support to faculty as they develop and implement meaningful, sustainable assessment initiatives to evaluate educational programs and the university experience more broadly.
CEA is here to serve UCLA faculty and administrators seeking to meet data and assessment needs, including consultation, survey design, and analysis.
