Abstract

As regional accreditation agencies place more emphasis on faculty-led, direct assessment of student achievement and demonstrated use of assessment results to improve teaching and learning, engaging faculty in assessment is becoming essential. However, it is a common trope in higher education that faculty do not want to participate in program- or institution-level assessment. California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) has created and implemented a model of institutional assessment as reflective faculty engagement that contradicts that trope. Participants in this session will be able to 1. Explain how institutional assessment can be used as reflective faculty development for tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty. 2. Explain how results of institutional assessment using modified AAC&U VALUE Rubrics and documentation of faculty experience has led to further faculty development and engagement at CSUMB. 3. Create strategies for engaging faculty at their campuses in institutional assessment to improve course-level teaching practices and student achievement.
