An exemplary, division-wide, student affairs assessment plan has a clear framework connected to larger institutional priorities, clear and measurable learning outcomes, a method to measure and report these outcomes, and a strategy to connect results with broader accountability measures.

This interactive conference will show you how to take your current assessment efforts to the next level. Working with an expert coach, you will leave with a revised assessment plan and clear next steps to implement the plan back on your campus.

Using a hands-on institute format, this event will combine short segments of content followed by moderated working time focusing on the following:

* A conceptual framework and common language for assessment
* How to revise learning outcomes to be more precise in their measurement
* An overview of evaluation methods and criteria
* Best practices for making decisions and promoting the results
* Ideas for communicating outcomes and promoting collaborative decision-making

Participants will join a team of other practitioners who are at a similar level of familiarity with assessment and will have a faculty coach who will work with them throughout the event.


This conference is designed for senior student affairs officers who want to learn how to take their assessment effort to the next level. This content is ideal for those at the intermediate stages of building a coordinated assessment effort, including those who have learning outcomes in place but might be struggling with measurement and using outcomes-based assessment results to interpret performance indicators.
