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.
