Percent of Sociology Departments Reporting Use of at Least One Assessment Tool for Undergraduates, by Institution Type


Data for AY 2000-01 and AY 2006-07 weighted to adjust for survey non-response based on institution type (Research, Doctoral, Master's, or Baccalaureate) in the Carnegie Classification system; data for AY 2011-12 not weighted because the breakdown of responding institutions generally corresponded with their representation in the Carnegie system.

For AY 2000-01, 461 of 617 responding departments reported use of an assessment tool(s); for AY 2006-07, 357 of 543 responding departments reported use of a tool(s); for AY 2011-12, 574 of 645 responding departments reported use of a tool(s).
