Workshop Description: Impactful assessment starts with an established infrastructure, collecting and analyzing data. Decisions based on cyclical goal and outcome assessment are evidence driven and allow for analysis of interventions in each following cycle. Typically described as closing the loop, this cycle requires an efficient assessment framework, robust data collection, analysis, and reporting.

Whether establishing a new program or reworking an existing one, this structure determines how successful your efforts will be. We describe typical assessment structures that consists of a stakeholder driven committee, data collection and administrative support. This framework is the foundation for all assessment activities that follow.

Efficient assessment structures are both data focused and flexible. Assessment data is drawn from institutional and newly established collection initiatives. Examples of both types of data are provided as well as data management best practices.

Weaving together program, division, and institutional goals, with mission and strategic planning creates a self-sustaining process that evaluates and improves programs and services. Only by using metrics and key performance indicators can we understand how students and the curriculum are interacting, and build a cycle of continuous program improvement for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Workshop Goals:

  • Assessment Framework: The framework that is established is the foundation for all assessment activities that should follow. Whether establishing a new program or reworking an existing one, first steps determine how successful your efforts will be.
  • Using Assessment Data to Make Impactful Change: Covering two types of data (institutional and seedling), this class delves deeper into how the types of assessment data impact change for programs and institutions.
  • Development of Assessment Matrices: As a capstone project, students will develop an assessment matrix helping to align their programs with their institutional mission and goals.

Participant Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to

  • Describe, create and deploy an efficient assessment structure for higher education institutions
  • Institute a plan for stakeholder driven assessment processes
  • Create assessment matrices for use in evaluating a program, division, or institutions' compliance with goals and outcomes
  • Create a robust data collection pipeline that takes advantage of institutional and de novo data
  • Develop an assessment & evaluation plan that lends itself to strategic planning

Workshop Benefits:

  • A thorough overview of assessment in higher education with an emphasis on using assessment to improve teaching and learning
  • An opportunity to become part of a community of assessment specialists during the course and into the future
