WTAMU uses effective learning assessment as an essential part of its educational process to ensure that students are learning what they need to be successful in their degree program and in their future careers.

“Dr. Kadhi brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in the area of learning assessment,” Dr. Wade Shaffer, provost/vice president for academic affairs, said. “He has developed and implemented successful assessment plans at other institutions in Texas and is familiar with both the Texas A&M University System and SACS.
