Who We Are and What We Do
The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment provides evidence to inform decision-making and leads the college’s efforts to assess student learning.
We are the source for official Keene State College data through
- reports to government agencies, trustees, accreditors, and other regulators;
- publications such as the Factbook;
- response to external surveys such as those from college ranking publications;
- research reports about important campus issues; and
- response to internal and external requests for information about the College.
We gather data about student experiences and student learning both inside and outside the classroom, through
- assessment of College-Wide Learning Outcomes;
- assessment of learning in the Integrative Studies Program;
- consulting with departments about best practices in assessment; and
- conducting surveys of students and alumni.

Policy and Resources for Electronic Student Surveys
Planning to conduct an electronic survey of KSC students? Here’s the information you need.
Assessment is a process of determining “what is.” Assessment provides faculty members, administrators, trustees, and others with evidence, numerical or otherwise, from which they can develop useful information about their students, institutions, programs, and courses and also about themselves.
You’ll find links to online resources here, including regional and national research associations, census data, and more.
