About the Portal


The ADVANCE Programs can assess the progress that has been made and the initiatives pursued within their institution. The links on this webpage show how ADVANCE programs assess themselves and how they are assessed by external evaluators. Included in the list are recommendations and tools for how to do effective assessment. All links on assessment are listed on this webpage and there are sub-categories for quicker refinement.
