Over the summer, Taskstream conducted an extensive survey into the “state of affairs” of assessment in higher education. The research explored several related topics, including the nature and perceived value of assessment, terminology in the field, and technology to support the work.
Join us for a free, interactive webinar as we discuss preliminary findings from this national survey, which received over 1,000 responses from institutional leaders, assessment professionals, and faculty at institutions of all types and sizes from across the country.
In this session, we will highlight:
· The perceived maturity of assessment practices at the individual and institutional levels
· What your peers found most appealing and most problematic about assessment-related work
· Challenges related to assessment terminology and how vocabulary impacts conversations regarding the measurement of student learning
· Opportunities for professional development to advance assessment efforts on campus
Correction: There is an error in the preferred professional development topics referenced in the webinar recording. The top areas for professional development that institutional leaders indicated interest in are: 1) Documenting assessment results and reports, 2) Inter-rater reliability, and 3) Scoring calibration/norming.
