Drexel Assessment Conference

The sixth Annual Drexel Assessment Conference was held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Sept. 11-13. Andrea Kirshman (CASA), R. Chad Brown (tutoring), Marlene Fares (advising), Lori Lentz (registrar), and Rachel Fager (library) presented a session titled “Outcomes Outside the Classroom: A Collaborative Approach to Developing SLO Assessment in Student Support Services.” The session included information on successful academic support assessment.
