This title is adapted from Shakespeare's Richard II in which leadership and change are shown to devolve into fights and betrayals over issues of power. While it may be a bit overly dramatic to equate the actions portrayed in Shakespeare's play with what is happening to the field of assessment in higher education, there are some intriguing parallels. This panel discussion will provide some perspectives on the practices of assessment from four different individuals who have been in this field for more than 100 years, combined. Coming from different types of institutions, different accrediting bodies, and different fields of study, expect to hear some honest appraisals focusing on why assessment hasn't really provided as much as we had hoped for to higher education. But, we will not only focus on aspects of ruin and decay - there are also some incredibly promising practices and opportunities in our field.
