The Assessment Team was charged with planning and implementing practical assessment initiatives that position the Alliance as an evidence-based/data-driven consortium. The team's development of assessment initiatives as well as their consultation and education regarding Alliance-wide assessment activities will provide the Board and Council with information and data that reflect benefits and communicate the impact and value of Alliance services and programs.

The Assessment Team is the result of the Assessment Task Force which was charged to consider and provide recommendations concerning the implementation of a consortial approach to assessing and communicating the value, outcomes, and impact of the Alliance. The Assessment Task Force issued its final report in June 2012, and the Board of Directors created the Assessment Team.
In 2013, the Alliance's Assessment Team was charged to update the NWCCU accreditation standards statement on the Alliance website. Their final report contains brief and extended statements for members' use in accreditation reports. For more information, see Accreditation Resources.
In 2014, the Assessment Team hosted the Library User-Experience & Assessment Un-conference (LUAU).
The Alliance Council disbanded the Assessment Team at its July 2016 meeting. The work of the Team is documented here.
