This report is useful in that it consolidates a lot of what has been written on this topic. However, since I am an alum of the ACRL Immersion, Assessment Track, and Megan Oakleaf was one of my faculty, I already had a lot of this knowledge. It will still be useful for communicating with my constituencies.
I spent most of yesterday reading this report, and will spend most of the rest of this evening processing my response. Incredibly useful for anyone who cares about institutional assessment, even if they aren't in libraries.
