Assessment System Planning
The 2008-2009 academic year was devoted to development of a plan for coordinating a campus assessment system. The Higher Learning Commission Assessment Academy project, ongoing work to develop campus learning outcomes, and a task force to re-design liberal education all contributed to significant products, but more important, to a greater awareness of the use of assessment to improve student learning. A brief history of the 2008-2009 year sets the stage for next steps. Decisions and actions are documented in CASL minutes and in the minutes of the Educational Policy Committee (EPC).
Work continued into the second year of the Assessment Academy. Progress to date was summarized in a poster presentation during the HLC Annual meeting. A brief history of the 2009-2010 year gives month-by-month activity.
CASL also approved revisions to the implementation timeline.
