New Jersey Institute of Technology’s Assessment and Accreditation Coordinator conducted a comprehensive reassessment of the existing academic program review process, a contextual study of previously implemented processes, and a census of previously submitted assessments. As a result, NJIT has refined and revitalized its program review initiative informed by a study of the MSCHE standards and the current academic consensus on higher education assessment through participation in a professional development certificate course through Weave Academy. This session shows how performing a review of an assessment plan can reinvigorate a positive culture of continuous improvement built upon a model of communication, collaboration, and facilitation.
Join us to:
- Understand how to utilize a detailed assessment plan for improvement
- Learn of the benefit of assessment development opportunities
- Acquire tools to enhance structured assessment plan frameworks
- Continuously improve alignment with MSCHE accreditation priorities
