Values-Based Assessment

When: October 16, 2019, 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Where: The Faculty/Staff Lounge (8th Floor HW)
Topic(s): Assessment

Presenter(s): Joel Bloom (Director of Assessment)


With increasing demands on assessment for compliance, assessment professionals have often focused either on either quality issues of validity and reliability, or quantity issues – producing a report for our evidence inventory. Joel Bloom tries to move toward developing assessment models that prioritize substantive importance over either statistical validity or external compliance. It’s so easy for assessment practitioners to get bogged down in compliance and data issues — which programs submitted reports, and whether they did them “right” — that we often lose sight of why we are here. This impacts our morale and makes it harder to make the case for why anyone should be doing the assessment.

In this presentation, Bloom will try to bridge that gap. This session will start with a review of the recent literature on assessment, institutional effectiveness, and student success, and move on to discuss ways assessment can be used to inform curricular and pedagogical improvements that will really transform students’ educational experiences, consistent with institutional values, mission, goals, and strategic priorities.
