Proceedings of the Spring 2017 Program Learning Outcomes Assessment Workshop
April 9, 2017
Sill Center Large Conference Room
The assessment of learning outcomes has become a common way for programs to improve their understanding of how well their students are gaining the knowledge and skills that the program wants them to have when they graduate. Learning outcomes assessment is also now an expected piece of evidence about student achievement in disciplinary and regional university accreditation.
While this workshop is designed for anyone who is interested in learning about and/or sharing assessment-related ideas, we think it will be particularly interesting to programs that are preparing for their 7-year program reviews.
