This paper presents a proposed structural framework for an assessment and CQI process that is both simple and effective. The process is based on the ideas that assessment should be done where it makes sense, it should not be necessarily redundant, and it should provide useful information for improving the program. Elements of the proposed process have been piloted in two separate programs, including direct and indirect summative assessment of program outcomes and direct formative assessment. Preliminary results suggest that the process will be simple and effective.
