Many institutions develop effective assessment components, but fail to integrate those tactics into a comprehensive assessment system that informs decisions about improvement. In this workshop we will explore the process of aligning learning outcomes, curricular/co-curricular activities, and assessments for the purpose of improving student learning. Workshop attendees will evaluate the quality of the alignment of their assessment processes and identify how that alignment impacts the inferences that can be made from assessment results. They will encounter and address practical issues when aligning the assessment process for their institution.
This session is intended for professionals with assessment duties that allow them to engage in alignment activities on their campus. The professionals are experienced in clarifying learning outcomes, evaluating assessments, and reviewing curricula. Professional charged with evaluating the quality of assessment on their campus are the target audience.
The participants will engage in short lectures followed by activities and discussion. Lectures will focus on practical issues and Think-Pair-Share activities will be used to assist participants in meeting the learning outcomes of the session.
