Twelve participants from 9 schools/colleges and 12 departments received their ALI completion certificates. All of the ALI learning outcomes were achieved and all participants produced and presented a meaningful and manageable assessment plan at the end of the ALI.

100% of the participants reported the Institute as useful and worthwhile, and they would recommend it to their colleagues. The participants left the ALI with energy to invigorate assessment activities in their programs.
