Assessing Student Learning Book Club
Join us for a book club on the practicalities of assessment. Why bother? How to do it? How to plan for it? How should we organize for implementation? What do we do with results? Who cares? Suskie’s book provides practical applications and strategies for assessments across the institution and the curriculum without making it so complicated that the assessment process dies a slow death. Comprehensive, without jargon, the text provides methods by which standards and benchmarks and, most importantly, how to use assessment data to make meaningful changes for improvement.
