Institutional Research, Planning and Assessment (IRPA)

We report research and analysis to support our mission of providing the world’s best science, engineering and math education in an atmosphere of individual attention. We are part of a profession-wide effort to continually improve what we do as educators.

Always Improving

IRPA's mission is to plan, design, and implement strategies for the collection and analysis of data and report information to support the evolving needs of faculty and administrators in the education of Rose-Hulman students.

We are nationally recognized for excellence in assessing student learning and using the results to guide new policies and practices. You can learn about our award-winning assessment method here.

In 2016, we were among just four institutions of higher learning recognized by the Excellence in Assessment (EIA) program for sustained excellence in student learning outcomes assessment. The EIA is sponsored by the Voluntary System of Accountability, a public college and university transparency initiative led by the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities in partnership with the Association of American Colleges & Universities and the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment.

IRPA offers:

  • Assessment Plans

  • Surveys/Polls
  • Scanning Tests
  • Strategic Planning
  • Accreditation Support
