As the students our institutions serve become increasingly diverse and mobile, how do our assessment processes and practices keep pace? How can we make arguments that our institution advanced student learning? This conversation focused on lessons learned and institutional examples drawn from the work of the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) to help us consider how to design assessment that focuses on students and their learning, with the ultimate goal of improvement of learning.

Natasha Jankowski, Associate Director of NILOA and Research Assistant Professor with the Department of Education Policy, Organization and Leadership at the University of Illinois UrbanaChampaign, has presented at numerous national conferences and institutional events, and written various reports for NILOA. Her main research interests include assessment and evaluation, organizational evidence use, and evidence-based storytelling. She holds a Ph.D. in Higher Education from the University of Illinois, an M.A. in Higher Education Administration from Kent State University, and a B.A. in philosophy from Illinois State University.
