ISSAQ: Assessment

In some ways, the work of ISSAQ begins with the questionnaire. After all, ISSAQ takes its name from the "Incoming Student Skills and Attitudes Questionnaire." This is the source of the data that can help change the work of our colleges and universities and - ultimately - student success. This page provides an overview of the assessment process and how it integrates with other ISSAQ components. For specifics about the survey itself, visit the Survey FAQ page.
