“Of Course They’re Learning, They’re Graduate Students!”: The Assumptions and Needs of Graduate Assessment

Wednesday
Nov 14, 2018
10:00 am - 11:30 am
Chanin (B126 HW) Assessment Breakfasts While academic departments and programs at Hunter College have been conducting assessment of student learning outcomes (SLOs) in their undergraduate programs for some time, assessment of learning outcomes within our graduate programs is far less widespread as well as less developed. The co-presenters will begin with some background on assessment of student learning, and will discuss similarities and differences between SLOs – and SLO assessment – between graduate and undergraduate programs. The workshop will include an interactive activity in which participants work together to review their current graduate outcomes and assessment plans or activities, and help identify ways in which they can be enhanced or improved. The workshop is open to all interested but particularly directed at assessment coordinators, chairs, and faculty in departments with graduate programs. [Details...]
