This session introduces a peer review process for assessment reporting that attempts to improve the quality of outcomes assessment and reporting while increasing faculty engagement with and expertise in student learning outcomes assessment. The presenters will describe their work over the past year that involved professional development, the creation and application of a rubric for reliably evaluating the presence of "best practices" in annual reports submitted by academic departments, and providing a mechanism for both formative and summative peer feedback. Participants will then have an opportunity to apply our version of the peer review rubric to a sample assessment report. Participants will share ideas for adapting a similar peer review process to fit their existing assessment practices and will discuss the potential benefits and pitfalls of our approach. This session is intended for anyone responsible for or interested in cultivating a culture of assessment that engages faculty and leads to continuous improvement in the way assessment is used to improve student learning.
