Outcomes-Based Assessment for Career Services
Venue: Grand Hyatt Denver
|Event Date/Time: Jul 25, 2011||End Date/Time: Jul 27, 2011|
Increased pressure to measure results and stringent accreditation standards are making it necessary for career services officers to move beyond counting office visits, job postings, and placements. A more sophisticated assessment methodology can help you align programming with your goals and justify departmental expenditures.
Join us to learn the theoretical perspective behind outcomes-based assessment and apply it as you develop a plan to take back to your institution. We will discuss key elements of an outcomes-based assessment plan, including:
Choosing a method for collecting data
Making decisions about programmatic changes
Closing the assessment loop by connecting the changes to long-term objectives
Integrating assessment work into broader program review efforts
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
Your team will collaborate with peers to solve common problems and benefit from expert critiques and guidance to create the framework for an assessment plan applicable to your institution.
'LEARN AND WORK' EVENT
Structured as a "learn and work" event, you will leave this conference armed with an action plan that will help you integrate a framework for assessment in order to improve student learning.
