The AAA Assessment web site provides information for academics, administrators and others interested in the assessment process. This site will list resources available that address specific aspects of assessment including information on development and design of an assessment program, the analysis of assessment data, and the reporting and use of assessment results.

The AAA Assessment Committee developed the following overview of the assessment process. Clicking on each step in the process will provide more detail on that step.

There are many resources available on assessment. For example, lists over 1,100 books on assessment; ERIC lists over 76,000 articles on assessment; ABI/Inform has over 900 articles on assessment; and the Internet search engine Google returns about 1,500,000 hits on assessment. Thus, the issue is not a lack of available resources, but to identify those resources that offer the greatest potential value for accounting. The 2001 AAA Assessment Committee has selected the following resources as having the highest potential value for accounting educators and administrators.
