Connecting the Curricular and Co-Curricular: Assessment Methods In and Outside of the Classroom (CEI 110)

     Melissa Wright, Senior Consultant, Campus Success, Campus Labs

     This session will begin with a case study about Assumption College’s use of rubrics, formative quick assessments, and surveys to gauge student learning within a sophomore experience program. We would then work backwards and discuss how these assessments were crafted, emphasizing the open-ended and flexible approach to design. We will then examine other examples of assessment methods that can be used across an institution, including standardized rubrics, classroom assessment techniques, targeted assessments around high impact practices, and quick climate surveys to capture community pulse on important issues.
