We are in your corner. We help build and bolster policies, processes, and practices that enable practitioners, educators, and leaders to capitalize on assessment’s promise as a resource that empowers us to deliver higher learning. Too often, assessment is used to measure broad outcomes that tell us very little about what students actually learn. Our focus is to develop capacity among educators and practitioners to conduct and utilize sound assessment in courses, programs, co-curricular activities and services, and general education. Specific areas of capacity building can include, but not be limited to:
•Developing, clarifying, or aligning goals for student learning up, down, and across the institution;
•Identifying measurable outcomes in the programs, services, resources, and activities that achieve learning goals;
•Supporting the development of sound, high quality instruments and methods to measure student learning that produce evidence with sufficient decision utility to guide and document improvement; and
•Creating or strengthening policies, processes, and practices that guide and inform change for learning.
