Welcome Assessment Professionals

Since 2008, The Chicago Area Assessment Group (CAAG) has sought to advance the understanding of academic assessment and its impact on higher education planning and effectiveness. This professional peer group provides a forum for sharing best practices, soliciting feedback, and creating an open dialogue for gathering information and thinking through the exchange of ideas.


 Board members represent institutions of considerable diversity in both public and private sectors. Expertise spans areas including academic and co-curricular assessment, institutional research/effectiveness, accreditation, compliance, teaching and learning, and faculty development.
