Periodic Program Review (PPR)

Students working collaboratively on a group project

Periodic Program Review is part of PDF fileRyerson’s Institutional Quality Assurance Process (IQAP), which addresses the requirements of the Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) , external linkestablished by the Ontario Universities Council on Quality Assurance (Quality Council)

PPR allows programs to complete a comprehensive self-assessment to ensure they achieve and maintain the highest possible standards of academic excellence and continue to meet societal need. 

Curriculum Review is a key component of the PPR process, which begins with developing or refining Program Objectives and Program Learning Outcomes, ensuring the program meets the Ontario Degree-Level Expectations, and mapping the program’s curriculum to determine where and how intended outcomes are delivered, achieved, and measured. 

Other major and minor curriculum modifications occur in the years between reviews.

Getting started with PPR

Programs scheduled to begin their PPR will be contacted by the Vice-Provost Academic (undergraduate) or Vice-Provost and Dean, YSGS (graduate) to attend an orientation workshop.

The following manuals provide faculty and staff with step by step guidelines to successfully navigate through the process.

Approved PPR Final Assessment Reports

Following Senate approval of the completed PPR, a Final Assessment Report summarizes the self-study and the recommendations of the peer review team, and is submitted to the Quality Council and Board of Governors.  In accordance with Ryerson’s IQAP, Final Assessment Reports for approved PPRs are posted below.
