After attending the local university carnival, you and your committee are gusted away to Munchkinland in the Land of Oz. Once you arrive, you find out that the lollipop guild is in need of a new summer camp curriculum. Word of your expertise in assessment travels fast! You accept faster than Dorothy can click her ruby red slippers together. Excited by your team's enthusiasm, the guild leader goes on to describe the program. The summer camp currently has three departments: courage, brains, and heart. They need you to develop a curriculum that will satisfy their main stakeholders: the munchkins (students), Dorothy (instructor), the Wizard (dean), and Toto (accreditor).

In this skill-building session, you will review the AACU principles and guidelines on assessment and apply them with a group of your peers to develop a program-level assessment plan to compete against others by presenting an assessment plan, founded in promising-practice, that utilizes creativity and fun, to the Provost's Witches Council. Those beginning their journey on the yellow-brick road of assessment will find this session's content most appropriate; however, it will offer something to anyone looking for a new way to engage in dialogue around assessment plans while networking with their peers.
