What is Assessment?

Eastern New Mexico University is committed to providing students with a rich educational experience. We are totally centered on student learning and student development.

We want to be able to demonstrate that we are making a difference in your lives. Assessment is the process of measuring how well student learning is progressing at ENMU.

To demonstrate that ENMU creates change and growth for you, we have devised a number of strategies to assess or measure your progress through your academic career. Because it is so vitally important for you, your parents, prospective employers and the community at large to see the extent of your progress, we encourage you to participate in assessment activities by Eastern New Mexico University.

Assessment measures give ENMU two kinds of information.

  • They let us us demonstrate how good an ENMU education really is.
  • They help us to identify areas of improvement, so we can constantly improve student learning at ENMU.

At Eastern New Mexico University, we test, survey and listen to students to help us improve all that we do for you.
