Workshop Evaluation Report

Just as students’ performance in and evaluations of a course can help professors improve their individual classes, aggregated information on program-level student performance can be used to improve student learning in the degree program. After listening to a short presentation, attendees will review examples of assessment results and discuss how programs could act upon the results to improve the program. Attendees will leave knowing

  • specific ways to use assessment results (e.g., changes to curriculum, assessment procedures, program policies);
  • how to interpret results; and
  • strategies to help faculty act on results.
