Days in May: Assessment Triple Play Wednesday 5/8

submitted by

What if we told you that this year, you’re not just getting ONE assessment presentation, but THREE TIMES the excitement for the same low, low price of zero dollars? Well, hold on to your tams and tassels, fellow faculty members, because this Wednesday, May 8th from 1 – 2:45pm in Oren 200 we’re hosting a series of presentations and discussions revolving around the assessment and program review work that was accomplished by programs, departments, and institutionally:

1. QR Assessment Results (1pm – 1:35pm): This year, the Assessment Committee collected data on Quantitative Reasoning from hundreds of students across a wide range of courses. During this session, we’ll use a new interactive PowerBI dashboard to examine emerging themes in this dataset, including the amount of mathematical and quantitative foundational coursework students experience, math placement scores, self-reflective assessments of their own skills and supporting experiences, and their performance on a short measure of applied problem solving skills.

2. Departmental Assessment Showcase (1:35 – 2:10pm): Departments and programs annually assess student learning and experience within their own curricular offerings. Join us for a cross-disciplinary showcase of some of the most impressive and creative approaches to assessment. As in previous years, this showcase is a great opportunity to draw inspiration from methods and approaches used by others on campus, and to learn more about the skills and backgrounds of our students.

3. Program Review Showcase (2:10 – 2:45): Do you have an upcoming program review? In this “showcase” session we will cover the basics of the program review process and hear from program directors and department chairs who recently completed an external review or are currently preparing for a review.

Days in May: Critical Response Process

submitted by

At Days in May, please join me (and your wonderful colleagues!) for an interactive and engaging day of all things Critical Response Process.

On Wednesday, May 8th from 10:15 am – 2:45 pm (with lunch break) in Oren 201 , two sessions will focus on Critical Response Process; you are welcome to attend either or both. The first session will focus on a demonstration of the full process and the second will explore the variations and applications across classroom contexts.

Developed by MacArthur fellow recipient Liz Lerman, Critical Response Process (CRP) is a method for giving and getting feedback that centers students and focuses on growing in-progress work. Further, the principles of CRP can guide our informal interactions and choices, helping teachers and students learn to communicate and engage more fully in learning.

Reach out with questions and see you there! – Mallory Alekna, music,

Critical Response Process – Formal Demonstration (10:15 am – 12 pm). During the workshop, attendees will experience a full demonstration of CRP and consider how these ideas apply to their individual classroom.

Critical Response Process – Variations to Foster Engagement & Agency in Your Classroom (1 – 2:45 pm). Attendees will explore the principles embedded in each step of CRP. Further, attendees will experience variations that can be implemented with students. Implementing CRP can help students to deeply engage with their learning, and foster their sense of agency. Attendees will discuss how to apply these ideas to their classrooms.

Online Survey – Chance to Win $100 Gift Card

submitted by

Hello Auggies! I am a graduate student seeking participants for a research study. I am exploring how one’s ability to recognize and regulate their own and others’ emotions may relate to feelings of depression and social disconnect. Participation in this study will involve completing a series of behavioral health inventories and a demographic screener that will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. These inventories will ask if you have experienced symptoms of depression or loneliness and ask how intensely you experience your everyday emotions. Following completion of these inventories, participants will complete a test online that will walk participants through a variety of different tasks, such as recognition of facial expressions and implied social meanings. This test will take approximately 45 minutes to complete. All participation in this study is done online from the comfort of your own home. Students are invited to participate in this study if you: (1) are between the ages of 18 and 31; (2) have not been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, schizophrenia, or a personality disorder; (3) have not experienced an interpersonally traumatic life event (i.e., assault by another human being); and (4) are not currently experiencing a major health concern (i.e., life threatening illness/injury or significant transplant/removal surgery).

For your time, participants will be entered into a random lottery drawing for one of three $100 Amazon gift cards!

If you have any questions or concerns regarding participation in this study, please contact me at If you would like to participate in this study, please click the link below. You will be taken to a secure, online survey where you will be presented with a consent form followed by the demographic screener and brief inventories. Upon completion of these, you will be shown the link to the final assessment.

Thank you!

Please join us for a “bon voyage” celebration in the learning commons on the first floor of Lindell Library on Friday, May 3 from 2pm to 5pm! Come for 5 minutes, an hour, or the whole time!

This celebration will be potluck style with book-themed dishes where puns are welcome (for example, “Olives or Twix,” “Infinite Chex,” “Curious Gruyère,” etc.) You’re welcome to bring something to share with or without a pun–or just yourselves! Stop by whenever you like.
