Graduate courses in higher education assessment attract early- to mid-career professionals, many of whom arrive with preconceived ideas about assessment. These adult learners typically experience challenges as they undergo a paradigm shift in their thinking and ultimately design realistic and effective assessment plans for their own institutions. In this session, a professor who designs and teaches assessment courses and a teaching assistant share their experiences as they help graduate students to unravel misunderstandings of assessment and design proposals to implement new or revised assessment efforts for their institutions. Participants are invited to share their challenges and successes on their paths to understanding and implementing assessment and to share their own "lessons learned" for their professional practice in teaching, administration, or student services.
