Continuous Improvement Assessment Forum (CIAF)


Event Details

Upcoming Workshop

Sept. 28-29, 2018

Day 1     8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Day 2     8:30 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.


This new, interactive forum provides a facilitated experience for program teams to analyze and improve their current assessment and evaluation processes. Over the course of two days, participants will work together on a series of activities that include short “best practice” presentations, peer evaluation of program assessment, and evaluation materials brought by teams.

Experienced facilitator Gloria Rogers will provide hands-on guidance throughout the program, offering each team feedback on their current processes and plans for improvement. At the end of the course, participants will leave with individual program team action plans.

As our first group program offering emphasizes teamwork and participation, we cannot accept individual registrations. Teams must have a minimum of two but no more than five members, and must register together. While we require at least two per team, we believe that a team of three is ideal, so we’re offering you 50 percent off registration of your third and fourth team members.

To maximize the experience, we recommend that at least one team member has attended Fundamentals of Program Assessment Workshop or the Institute for the Development of Excellence in Assessment (IDEAL).
