Graduate Program Learning Assessment: Processes, Tools, and Resources

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Assessment and Curriculum Support Center, Graduate Division, and the Graduate Council.

Wondering how to move beyond the pass rate for theses/dissertations and gain in-depth insights into our students’ achievement and learning needs? This workshop invites faculty and graduate program curriculum leaders to explore meaningful and feasible ways to engage in collaborative inquiry of student learning in graduate programs. Assessment and Curriculum Support Center will introduce graduate program learning assessment and best practices on campus. Several graduate program assessment leaders will share their own meaningful and collaborative assessment practices in the context of their discipline. Participants will take away concrete tools and resources to inform their program’s assessment process. Additionally, participants are invited to receive individual consultation from the workshop presenters in Zoom breakout rooms.

Workshop Intended Outcomes:

  • Participants will be able to access concrete tools and resources (e.g., excellent assessment reports, rubrics, how-to articles, workshop materials on assessment topics).
  • Participants will select strategies to complete the assessment-for-improvement cycle that are feasible and meaningful for their context.
  • Interested participants who seek individual feedback will receive immediately implementable advice to advance program learning outcomes practice in their program.
