This paper is a report on the findings of one instructional design and technology’s department’s self-evaluation. Deming’s Plan-Do-Study-Act model was used to move the department from an informal use of assessment data to a more formalized process. The study reports a description of the departmental assessments used, how they were coded, analyzed, and used for continuous improvement. Recommendations for other institutions to use when developing a framework for improvement are also stated.
