Students want to learn: and they want faculty members to know what they want to learn, how they learn best, and what they want to get out of a course or program of study. Student input before and during a course help faculty design better learning experiences for all students. This interactive presentation will introduce faculty and assessment professionals to practices that introduce students to the learning environment and assessment of student learning, with the goal of obtaining better, more holistic and meaningful data about student achievement. Participants will learn about using surveys, innovative and transparent assignments, and pedagogical approaches that can invite students into the process of measuring learning, making students equal partners in the assessment process. Sample surveys, assignments, and other materials will be provided.
