Linking Program Goals with Evidence to Improve Outcomes Assessment
Vice President for Enrollment & Student Affairs
In this hands-on workshop, Dr. Pohl will guide participants through the processes of determining the type of evidence appropriate for assessing their program learning goals, obtaining such evidence, and developing a plan for implementing a useful and ongoing assessment process. Please come prepared with your program goals and ideas for assessing these goals.
Direct vs. Indirect Measures in Program Assessment
Assistant Dean of Strategic Initiatives & Student Learning, SMG
Associate Dean of Academic Programs & Student Affairs, SMG
Measuring student learning is an essential step in the assessment process. In this session, we will explore how faculty can use both direct and indirect measure to assess student performance against program learning goals. Through the perspective of recent efforts at two institutions, we will explore how direct and indirect measurements can be identified, the role direct measurements play, and why there is value in using both.
