The AALHE Board established the Knowledge Development Task Force (KDTF) in 2017. Its mission is "To identify and facilitate ways to advance the development of a body of knowledge devoted to assessing and improving student learning in higher education. The group created a charter with five goals:
1. Create a set of developmental rubrics for the last four decades of literature on assessment of learning in higher education (ALHE).
2. Identify advances recorded in journals within library databases in the last four decades.
3. Conduct content analyses. Include disciplinary journals and other sources with information about ALHE.
4. Identify problems that could be solved in the next decade
5. Facilitate implementation of the selected solutions
The task force completed Goal 1 by creating a 14 dimensional rubric for the development of expertise in ALHE. We have began work on 2 and 3. Task force members introduce the rationale, methods, and findings so far while offering opportunities for participants to learn, discuss, and influence the future work of the KDTF.
