ABET

Advanced Program Assessment Workshop – Ft. Lauderdale, FL

04/16/16


Event Details

If you have already attended an ABET Fundamentals of Assessment Workshop and are confident in your assessment knowledge, but looking for a highly focused, hands-on group session to hone and refine your current process, this is your next step.

During the Advanced Program Assessment workshop, you work in a small group to critique performance indicators, undergo rubric calibration training, critique assessment processes, and engage in exercises centered on data visualization and evaluation. You leave the workshop with the ability to apply what you learned to improve your own assessment program.

You will leave the workshop prepared to:

  • Create a sustainable assessment process.
  • Assure consistency in multi-faculty evaluations.
  • Identify ways to improve your current assessment processes.
