This year’s convention spotlight, “Education & Industry: Mediating the Nexus,” provides a strong focus for assessment in higher education. At many universities, industry partners play an integral role in each phase of the programmatic assessment process. Academic learning, from theory through practice, identifies rich stories of achievement, names potential gaps and fosters collaboration while closing the loop. This year’s Assessment Boot Camp takes on the nexus to share assessment experiences from admission through commencement, at universities across the country.
