Institutional Assessment

Assessment Manual


At the end of the day, you rest. When an assessment cycle ends, you act. You act on the desire to improve your own work and the lives of those you serve.

The best way to know that you are making a difference—contributing to the mission—is to set a goal, gather data from the work you already do, compare it to what you hope to be doing, and make a change if you fall below—no guilt, no worries, just improvement. Assessment is a simple cycle that drives mission as well as motivation; and, at Isothermal, is effective, efficient, even simple.
