Length of Workshop:        1.5 hours 
Prerequisite   

Description:
In this webinar, student affairs professionals will understand how to combine formative and summative assessments to gain both the information needed for accreditation and the information needed to improve student outcomes. Clearly defined outcomes, necessary to identify valid measures for either purpose, will be discussed.

Accreditation is sometimes viewed separately from assessment, with accreditation, having a decidedly summative focus and assessment having more of an improvement, formative focus. In this webinar, student affairs professionals will understand how to combine formative and summative assessments to gain both the information needed for accreditation and the information needed to improve student outcomes. Clearly defined outcomes, necessary to identify valid measures for either purpose, will be discussed. The importance of designing and aligning programs, delivery methods, and measures to foster these outcomes will also be discussed.
 

 

Objectives

As a result of successful completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:

  •  Describe how validity considerations must drive the selection for both summative and formative purposes
  •  Describe when an external standardized instrument is appropriate to measure learning outcomes
  •  Explain why surveys are typically inadequate for either purposes
  •  Explain why it is necessary to specifically define outcomes
