The complexities of conducting program and institutional level assessment are known too well by even the novice assessment practitioner. In their quest to obtain results that can be used to improve teaching and learning, practical and methodological roadblocks and potholes can meet them at every turn. The clarity of learning outcomes, the alignment of measures and educational experiences, sampling, data analysis, dissemination, and motivation can each present obstacles worthy of focused consideration and discussion. In this session, we have assembled a panel of experienced assessment practitioners with keen interests in helping others navigate the hazardous terrain of assessment methodology and design. Their varied perspectives on data collection, data use, and ultimately learning improvement will be discussed.
This panel will help the audience identify methods and approaches to assessment that that tend to miss their intended mark. They will discuss an array of issues that impact all phases of the assessment cycle. Assessment practitioners at all levels of experience will be welcome to participate in an innovative Q&A session.
