Assessment Happens Fall 2015

Submitted by Erik Huntsinger on

Based on the evaluations of prior Assessment Happens (AH), the SAAC co-chairs (on advice of the committee) implemented several changes to the Fall 2015 AH, including: 

  • Faculty-generated as opposed to "expert delivered" examples of instructional improvement
  • A system for storage and easy access of these suggestions (see attachment)
  • A continuous improvement cycle model based upon: 1. Conduct AH ==> 2a. feedback gathered from participants ==> 2b. SAAC input/suggestions ==> 3. Planning for next AH ==> 4. Implementation of suggestions at next AH
  • Reduced use PowerPoint
  • Coffee!
  • During faculty CATS workshop, administrators met to provide improvement suggestions for SAAC/SAAC co-chairs
  • Modification of Jeopardy (e.g., eliminate "jumble" clues :) )

Based upon the most recent evaluation of Fall 2015 AH, the goals based upon prior evaluations were met and satisfaction was generally high (see attached).

Erik and Pete, Thanks for putting this into the CATS so we can refer to it and learn from it. I am always looking for improvements on giving student feedback. Olga
