About the Teagle Assessment Workshop

This workshop is designed for people who want to kick-start, reboot, fine-tune, or extend an assessment project at their institutions. The workshop will bring together teams from a variety of schools and backgrounds to engage in both independent and collaborative work to develop plans that they can implement upon their return. Finally, the workshop will be structured to support a wide range of assessment projects including general education assessment, departmental assessment, using NSSE or other survey data as part of an assessment plan, and assessment approaches for particular programs or components of student experience such as first-year programs, academic advising, or diversity experiences/inclusivity.
