As NC State prepares to welcome 62 new faculty for the fall 2021 semester, staff in DASA Assessment and the Office of Assessment and Accreditation are excited to introduce faculty to the Pack Proficiencies! Assessment
In spring 2021, DASA Assessment presented the fall 2020 First Term Survey results to students, faculty and staff across campus through web content and unit-level presentations. Results will be used to inform decisions designed to improve student experiences at NC State.
