Abstract: Assessment in information systems (IS) programs is here, and it is here to stay! AACSB, ABET, and almost every other accrediting agency require some type of assessment. Assessment activities help faculty determine levels of student learning. It can be used to see how courses in the IS curriculum link together to form a coherent IS program. Assessment results can be used as compelling evidence of the quality of teaching. In short, assessment allows IS educations to place an emphasis on learning in IS programs and classes. This Special Issue presents eight papers that support the assessment of IS programs.
