Resources for Higher Education Outcomes Assessment
page's address is
As of 2/14/13, the
address includes "/archives/". The old address
didn't -- it was simply http://www2.acs.ncsu.edu/UPA/assmt/rsrc_new.htm. If you come here from the main Internet Resources
page there'll be no problem. But if you try
to come directly to the old New
(without the "/archives/"), you may get a "Page not found" error or you
may see what looks
like the New Links
page but without any recent updates.
if you have the Internet
Resources or the New
Links pages bookmarked and haven't updated your bookmarks
yet, please do. If
you have a link to one of them on a page of your own, please update
And if you came to Internet
Resources or the New
Links page from
a link on someone else's page, please ask them to
update the link.
Thanks for your help.
