Dr. Jayne Swanson, associate vice president for Academic Affairs, Assessment and Professional Development Office, Alfred State College, will present a workshop on “Starting at the End: Conducting Assessment with a Focus on Using Results and Closing the Loop” on Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 10 – 11:30 a.m. and again at 2 – 3:30 p.m. in MSU 312. This workshop will discuss the process of assessing student learning outcomes by focusing on the final step – using assessment findings for decisions about maintaining or changing the educational experiences related to a student learning goal. Decisions, however, depend on a clear understanding of the nature of the learning goal, the methods, measures, and analyses utilized in the assessment, and typical levels of student performance, among other factors. The workshop’s examination of using assessment results will be informed by specific cases of “closing the loop” at KU and other institutions. If you are planning to attend the workshop, please respond to email@example.com with the time you would like to attend.
