Implementing consistent assessment processes that produce actionable results and engage contingent or adjunct faculty can be a challenge at any institution. The goals of this presentation are to share methods used to implement consistent assessment practices at scale; provide replicable ideas that can improve faculty engagement, in particular adjunct faculty engagement through innovative alternatives to face-to-face meetings; review simplified reporting mechanisms that adjunct faculty can use to promote actionable results; and discuss the important "next steps where assessment results are shared with stakeholders and used to improve programs.
In 2016, the University of Phoenix School of Health Services Administration developed a standardized asynchronous forum to engage adjunct online faculty in assessment meetings. The forum provided greater schedule flexibility intended to improve faculty participation in assessment activities. The 2016 efforts resulted in 53% adjunct online faculty participation rates and set the benchmark for future asynchronous forums. The 2017 results for Health Admin was a 64% participation rate, and for the School of Nursing, where these forums were implemented in 2017, there was a 58% participation rate. Theses asynchronous assessment forums engaged faculty and produced actionable reports that continue to drive assessment changes.
