Developing and implementing meaningful
Coming to Terms with Assessment. Developing and implementing meaningful but manageable procedures for assessing learning outcomes has become one of the key challenges for both faculty and administrators in higher education. During his tenure as President of M L A, Jerry wrote a piece entitled
Assessment Changes Everything” that stirred a lot of debate, and we are reporting it here in hopes it can foster meaningful dialogue about assessment. We’re including below selections from comments Greg and Paul had about Jerry’s article based on their own recent experiences. We hope these reports, and Jerry’s article will help foster some discussion here about the vexing issues we cover. Please feel free to add your point of view — or experience — in a comment.
