Assessment takes many forms, depending on the audience. Over the past several decades, many faculty have used assessment techniques to enhance teaching and learning. It is a data-based technique to make informed decisions regarding curriculum, partnerships and graded assignments. In this age of accountability, service learning course assessment can provide needed information on the importance of active and engaged learning. Specifically, assessment of service learning courses can show evidence of the multiple and layered learning outcomes that are embedded within this pedagogy.

This presentation will provide a general overview of assessment theory, followed by beginning, intermediate and advanced techniques.  Specific examples will be provided for a variety of disciplines. Preparation, resources and outcomes for various strategies will be offered


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

  •  Improve student learning

  •  Enhance relationships with community partners
