Using Assessment to Improve and Account for Student Learning
|Event Date/Time: Mar 24, 2011||End Date/Time: Mar 25, 2011|
Developing a coherent and comprehensive program of student learning outcomes assessment is a challenging, if not daunting, endeavor. Adding significantly to the challenge is increased demand for accountability for student learning, including a notable push for standardized testing at the collegiate level. Faculty are understandably skeptical about efforts to reduce teaching and learning to a few simple measures, especially when they are asked to do so under new time demands and with little reward or incentive.
Join our national assessment and accountability experts to identify approaches to creating a culture of improvement-oriented assessment at your institution while meeting the growing external demands.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
* Institutional leaders
* Coordinators and facilitators of student learning outcomes assessment
* Faculty and academic administrators involved in assessment and accreditation
The program is intended to minimize time out of office and maximize learning. It will balance presentations with group discussions and focused interaction with speakers. In so doing, participants will be able to identify and develop assessment elements that can be translated to fit their unique institutional settings.
