Topic: Involving Students In Assessment
To support and sustain assessment, the Center for Research on Teaching Excellence at UC Merced offers the Students Assessing Teaching and Learning (SATAL) program, in which trained undergraduates gather indirect evidence of student learning on behalf of faculty to improve student learning and institutional services. SATAL trains undergraduates in research design, data gathering and effective reporting. In this interactive session, we will explore the SATAL program structure, benefits and evidence of impact on instructional practices and curriculum at course and program levels. We look forward to a conversation about the assessment findings and how to replicate the program elsewhere.
The Center for Student Leadership & Development at Concordia University Irvine helped students develop assessment plans for their co-curricular activities. This was presented during a WSCUC visit. The students will discuss their assessment process, plans for closing the loop, and strategies for sharing the results with multiple stakeholders, including you!
