Assessment and continuous improvement have become focus areas for accrediting agencies. The process used to develop assessment plans within a sequence of MIS courses at a major midwestern university is described. The process includes establishing student outcomes, developing assignments that tap into these outcomes, and utilizing both direct and indirect assessment measures. Actionable insights that can be gleaned to improve pedagogy from the use of both direct and indirect measures are described.
