On July 12, 2019 in the SA Haley Auditorium at the 1890 Extension Building, Department chairs and Co-curricular program directors were addressed by Mr. Chuck Maher (CEM Consulting). Mr. Maher was instrumental in the 2015 change to rubric-based, data-driven assessment here at UAPB. Chuck’s workshop, entitled: “Assessment Data: Your building blocks to program improvement and closing the loop”, was intended to help improve the way assessment data is reviewed, interpreted and reported. Mr. Maher spoke on growing the culture of assessment on campus, how to report improvement, and things to consider when closing the loop.
According to survey results, Department heads walked away with a better understanding of the Assessment Process, and how to use the data from their programs to start conversations with their staff about ways to improve student learning.
