ZCTL 227 - Assessment by Design
This one-day workshop has two complementary learning outcomes: 1) to provide useful information on how to assess what and how our students are learning; and 2) to illustrate ways faculty can effectively utilize the Cycle of Assessment as a framework to improve teaching and learning.While there may be considerable variation in assessment activities across disciplines, departments, programs and colleges, the Cycle of Assessment provides a unifying framework to organize assessment activities and to make decisions that lead to improvements in student learning. This workshop will lead participants through the Cycle of Assessment with a goal of developing an assessment plan for the upcoming academic year. Participants will gain working knowledge of each phase of the cycle as they work with peers on the development of a meaningful question and a viable assessment plan for the next academic year.
