The Office of Academic Assessment and Program Review has collaborated with Academic Resources and Planning and Institutional Technology to develop the OnBase platform, an archiving system for departmental program review materials. The purpose of having OnBase is for each department (that goes through CSUN program review) to have a digital archive of its program review materials. This resource will not be used for externally accredited programs that do not go through CSUN program review. OnBase was beta tested by a number of CSUN departments going through program review during 2018-2019.
Each departments’ archive is available only to department members who are approved for and given access. This includes the Chair of the department and any faculty identified by the Chair as needing access for their program review work. An introduction to the OnBase system will be provided at the annual spring launch meeting for programs which are beginning their program review process. Access for chairs of departments beginning their program review cycle in the Fall will be granted in the spring prior to the launch meeting. Past program review files have been transferred over to OnBase so programs and departments are able to look at what has been done in previous reviews.
Program Review files stored in OnBase for ease of retrieval are:
- External Review Schedules
- External Reviewer Reports
- Final MOU's
- 3-Year Post Review Reports
The OnBase program review digital archive will be managed by the Office of Academic Assessment and Program Review. The Program Review coordinator will be your direct point of contact should you have questions at any point.
