What policies and practices support sustainable assessment at your institution? Are there systemic gaps or barriers to faculty engaging in meaningful assessment, as part of what they regularly do? How do you demonstrate a faculty-driven, "effective, regular, and comprehensive system of assessment of student achievement to your accreditor? At our decentralized, research-intensive university, we've been exploring these questions and working toward concrete improvements in practices for the past six years. We've found that some aspects of assessment lacked clear policies or expectations, and some policies and practices were in conflict. This poster session will share strategies and tools our assessment office used to a) gather data about existing assessment practices and barriers, b) work with stakeholders to clarify roles and responsibilities, and c) recognize exemplary assessment practices. More recently, an Associate Dean in our largest college helped advanced system-wide recognition of faculty engagement in assessment as a part of annual review, through her intentional outreach and strategic engagement with university and faculty leaders under our institution's shared governance system. This turning point in policy will impact practice university-wide, at all levels.
