Thursday, April 25

Jeremy Penn, PhD, President of the Association for the Assessment of Learning in Higher Education (AALHE) University of Iowa

Co-curricular program leaders are among the most dedicated and caring professionals on campus. Yet, in an era of tightened budgets and increased student debt, co-curricular programs are increasingly challenged to produce evidence of their effectiveness. In this workshop we will provide a framework for implementing co-curricular assessment, including being clear about the purpose of co-curricular assessment, designing a co-curricular assessment study, validity and reliability, analyzing and communicating results, and taking action. By the end of the session attendees will have the skills necessary to begin developing their own co-curricular assessment projects.
