  • Program Book Abstract:Though assessment practice is increasingly prevalent in higher education, clear expectations for what constitutes quality assessment are less common. Less common still is the use of assessment results to make pedagogical or curricular changes to enhance student learning. Through measurement of quality assessment practices on our campus, we aim to show that using specific resources and understanding the critical role of re-assessment can augment faculty development in the area of assessment and lay the foundation for student learning improvement. Participants will reflect on the assessment culture at their own institutions and identify developmental resources appropriate for faculty and staff on their campuses.
