The Annual Assessment Report (AAR) summarizes progress made on an academic program’s assessment plan, along with reporting any updates and changes. It is required for every non-accredited program (graduate and undergraduate) at UVM. Externally accredited programs (graduate and undergraduate) should submit an updated E1B form instead, in any year in which they receive an updated accreditation letter from their accrediting body; in other years, it is sufficient to communicate to your unit assessment coordinator that there are no updates to the E1B form.

Submission and review process for AY 20-21 AAR and E1B forms was completed in Fall 2021. The deadline for AY 21-22 is September 30th, 2022. If you are a faculty, program coordinator, or assessment coordinator, please refer to the forms and list of unit assessment coordinators provided below as you plan for the AY 21-22 submission.
