The institute will run from January 8th – 10th, 2019
(The 2019 Institute is full – please check back next fall!)
What are your primary concerns about student learning? Have any of your classroom activities, assignments, or assessments left you wondering whether students actually learned what you taught?
Join us as we work together to create an assessment plan for your course that will provide you and your students with targeted feedback and information on student progress toward your learning goals.
By the end of this Institute for Learning Assessment, faculty members will:
Develop tools to evaluate incoming student knowledge, skills and attitudes before, or early in, the course
Create classroom assessment tools, assignments, and practice opportunities that promote student learning
Develop a plan to continuously identify and use assessment to analyze teaching-learning issues, create targeted student feedback to respond to classroom needs, and provide data to inform learning progress.
“[This workshop] helped me understand my current course challenges and how and why I am wrestling with the set of assessment decisions I have, and how to make better decisions based on my course goals and objectives.”
“The Institute was cross disciplinary, interactive and even fun with kind, supportive facilitation.”
