About the Workshop
Your assessments have been conducted. Your students have finished tests, assignments, and surveys. Faculty have evaluated student work. Now what?
In this workshop, we will…
Discuss the many ways to set standards for interpreting assessment results, including the pros and cons of “value added” and “comparable” benchmarks.
Explore ways to share assessment results in clear and useful ways with your assessment’s audiences.
Focus on using assessment results to improve teaching and learning.
Review MSCHE’s expectations regarding student learning assessment and how to share your assessment results with the Commission.
Presentations on each of these topics will be interspersed with small group hands-on exercises that will let you think about and practice what you’re learning.
