Interim Assessment Reports
The Assessment Subcommittee has outlined a year-long process to assure that we fulfill the requirements set out by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) for our mandated January 2015 Progress Report. Each department is required to submit an “Interim Assessment Report” that focuses on a direct measure of student learning for at least one Program Learning Outcome.
To support departments during this process, an assessment workshop focused on choosing (or developing) a direct measure of student learning will be offered twice on Friday, April 11, 2014. The first workshop is from 9:00–10:30 a.m., and the second workshop is from 1:00–2:30 p.m., and both sessions will be held in the Founders Room (Old Main). These are repeat sessions, so you are invited to choose either the morning session or the afternoon session.
These workshops will be facilitated by Dr. Paula DeHart, School of Education & Assessment Coordinator, who will assist departments in writing the second part of their “Interim Assessment Report” which is required to be submitted to the Assessment Subcommittee by June 15, 2014. In addition to fulfilling the Progress Report requirement, departments will also be aided in identifying direct assessment measures that are meaningful and fulfill the aims of their existing five-year assessment plan.
Department chairs, departmental assessment committee members, and instructors responsible for collecting assessment evidence are especially encouraged to attend one of these workshops.
