Assessment, Accreditation And Compliance: The Three Musketeers Or The Three Stooges?, Jody Brylinsky Mar 2014

Assessment, Accreditation And Compliance: The Three Musketeers Or The Three Stooges?, Jody Brylinsky

Assessment in Action Conference

This presentation describes how assessment, accreditation and compliance fit together, in particular how they influence WMU’s strategic planning initiatives. While these three academic responsibilities work in concert to support the common goal of quality higher education, they often do so in some unusual ways? The purposeful connections and comedy of their relationship will be explored with illustrations from WMU pathway to reaccreditation in 2020.

Instituting A Proactive Risk Assessment Model: The Promise And Peril Of Predictive Approaches To Student Success, John Chew, Kevin Knutson, Edwin A. Martini

Assessment in Action Conference

In this session, the presenters, (all from the College of Arts and Sciences at WMU), describe a pilot project that attempts to predict the likelihood of student persistence based on a variety of factors, including non-cognitive assessment. Led by a graduate assistant who designed the survey tool and analyzed the data, they discussed the pros and cons of such an approach and the benefits of doing such work for the professional development of graduate students.

It's Hard To Hit A Moving Target: Establishing Clear Learning Objectives, Diane Rogers

Establishing and communicating clear learning outcomes from the beginning of a course can help to both improve the quality of student work and positively impact learning. This session will focus on writing clear learning and assessment expectations for academic courses and discuss strategies for implementing the outcomes in your course.

Beyond Satisfaction: Assessing (Learning And Other) Outcomes In Co-Curricular Areas, Kate Bates, Anne Lundquist, Cari Robertson, Ewa Urban, Chris Voss

Assessment in Action Conference

Most student support areas are fairly adept at designing surveys to capture satisfaction data. While important, there are other types of assessment that require our attention, not only so that we can impact student learning and improve programs and services for students and other constituents, but as an essential aspect of meeting revised Higher Learning Commission accreditation standards. This workshop will provide information about the various definitions and approaches to assessing student learning and operational outcomes in co-curricular areas and offer specific examples from four student affairs areas that may be applicable to other units on campus.
