Through effective use of AMS by Taskstream, Louisiana State University successfully addressed accreditation principles pertaining to planning and assessment. Staff in the Office of Assessment and Evaluation (OAE) worked with faculty and administrators of academic units to develop electronic evaluation and documentation strategies that not only simplified and made transparent, for practitioners, these essential aspects of institutional effectiveness, but also demonstrated to accreditation reviewers in 2014 the university’s commitment to the intent that informs the accreditation principles. Accreditors found full compliance with the principles at an institution that, like so many, had struggled to come into compliance during previous accreditation cycles.
