Advanced Program Assessment Workshop
Saturday, October 6, 2018*
ABET Headquarters, Baltimore, MD
*In the last issue of Catalyst, we misstated the date of this workshop. The correct date is October 6, 2018. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If you have already attended an ABET Fundamentals of Assessment Workshop and implemented what you learned, the Advanced Workshop will help you to evaluate your progress.
Developing sustainable assessment processes that lead to quality improvement of educational programs is an iterative process. Most experts would agree that the first few cycles of an assessment process lead to more improvements in the actual assessment processes than they do in improvements of student learning. This workshop is designed to help you take a critical look at your current assessment processes and take them to the next level of quality. Workshop activities are focused on critiquing processes and developing ways to ensure consistency in the assessment of student learning across multiple faculty evaluators. You will build on the principles taught in ABET Fundamentals to develop more efficient and effective processes.
During the Advanced Program Assessment workshop, you will work with peers to critique performance indicators, participate in rubric calibration training, review assessment processes, engage in an evaluation exercise, review examples of reporting documents and discuss faculty engagement in continuous improvement processes. You will leave the workshop with the ability to apply what you learned to improve your own assessment program.
The workshop prepares you to:
- Create a sustainable assessment process.
- Assure consistency in multi-faculty evaluations.
- Identify ways to improve your current assessment processes.
- Develop strategies to engage your colleagues.
