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

When: November 14, 2018, 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Where: Chanin Center Insdorf Screening and Club Room, B126 West
Topic(s): Assess student work, Assessment

Presenter(s): Joel Bloom (Provost Office), Rob Cowan (Arts & Sciences)

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.

We ask that participants bring as many of the following items as they have developed and can find, in order to be able to participate fully in the workshop, for both undergraduate and graduate programs:

  • Mission and/or values statements
  • Program goals
  • Student learning outcomes
  • Curriculum maps
  • Any example of capstone-type materials in your program, such as comprehensive exam questions, thesis guidelines, etc., and rubrics you use for evaluating them.

A light breakfast will be served.
