Program Assessment Support

ATL’s assessment specialists support faculty efforts to assess undergraduate program-level student learning outcomes. They work with program assessment coordinators, department and college leadership, and other faculty members to:

  • Plan and implement assessment; develop or refine measures and analysis
  • Review current good practices in assessment in a particular discipline
  • Interpret and use assessment results to improve teaching and learning
  • Find solutions to assessment bottlenecks
  • Meet assessment requirements for regional accreditation

Assessment specialists offer one-on-one consultations, group workshops, focus groups, and are available to attend department and college meetings to help facilitate discussions about assessment. Topics for consultation and workshops include:

  • Using curriculum maps
  • Designing assessment that is integrated rather than “added-on”
  • Student focus groups
  • Senior exit surveys
  • Capstone assessment
  • Rubric development
  • Interpreting assessment results
  • Closing the loop: how to use assessment results in ways that matter to faculty

Contact an assessment specialist more information (or see Contact Us page for additional staff support).
