Best Practices for Collaborative Assessment
August 18, 2021
While the term itself may be part of an individual job title or office name, assessment is a shared responsibility that requires coordination and collaboration across an institution. This is especially the case when it comes to assessing the multiple components of a liberal education that connects general education and majors as well as curricular and cocurricular experiences. This webinar highlights proven strategies for collaborative assessment. The panelists discuss best practices for managing and assessing a robust general education program and how working “across the aisle”—between faculty and administrators, between academic programs, between academic and student affairs—can help to promote student retention and, ultimately, graduation.
This is the second in a five-part series of webinars exploring assessment practices at Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
