Programmatic Assessment is tricky business, especially if this is your first go around. And even if you’ve been at this work for a while, a fresh perspective can really help improve your process. We wonder . . . have I designed student learning goal and objectives in a way that yields authentic results about programs? Am I using the best possible rubric? Have I balanced direct and indirect measures? This year’s assessment boot camp focuses on several aspects of the assessment process, provides a case study to delve in a bit deeper, and culminates with a hands-on session where we provide feedback to attendee’s own assessment reports. Our boot camp team will review your assessment report and provide peer advice in a small group setting. Please email your report to Stacey Irwin @stacey.irwin@millersville.edu by 3/10/18. (Only reports received by March 10th will be reviewed)
