Office of Institutional Research and Assessment changes title

(10-11-2011)

The Adams State College Office of Institutional Research and Assessment is changing their title to Office of Institutional Reporting. According to Andrea Benton-Maestas, Institutional Research and Assessment senior analyst, the change better reflects their services. "The name change does not change our service mission, but more accurately reflects what we do."

Benton-Maestas said when analyzing the responsibilities of the department, the principle activity pertains to reporting. Although research transpires, it is minimally. The extent of assessment is relevant to data input and extraction, proctoring exams, and managing the budget.
