Office of Assessment of Teaching and Learning WSU Working Groups

Liaison Council for Undergraduate Assessment

The Liaison Council meets every other month to:

  • Participate in an institution-wide system for planning and managing program assessment (WSU reports on the Liaison Council’s activity as part of our assessment system and accreditation).
  • Share best practices in assessment and addressing common challenges.
  • Collaborate on the development of key processes for undergraduate assessment and accreditation reporting at WSU. Ensure that processes work well from the college and campus perspectives (useful, scalable, and appropriate) and address rough spots as systems, processes and tools are refined.
  • Give input on support for assessment in all colleges and ┬áprograms, including those with professional accreditation.

Council members help build WSU’s assessment capacity and systems as they:

  • Contribute to professional development of academic leadership in assessment. Situate WSU’s approach and concerns in national discourse on assessment and in NWCCU’s accreditation standards.
  • Share best practice resources, examples, successes and bottlenecks. Identify resources for dissemination among assessment committees and chairs.
  • Discuss common concerns and help council members, their colleges, and programs solve problems they wrestle with in assessment and reporting.
