Academic Assessment Highlight: Message to Assessment Leads, Oct. 16, 2020
Dear Assessment Folks,
The Academic Assessment Committee (AAC) would like to check-in with you about the academic assessment activities for this academic year. First, a reminder that there is no assessment report due this year on October 15th because the expedited program review that you completed last year served as a proxy. This academic year (AY 20-21) we will return to our normal reporting procedures at UAA which includes the annual survey, due June 15th, 2021 and the annual report that will be due October 15th, 2021. The October 2021 report should include assessment activities and results from AY2019-2020 as well as this academic year 2020-2021.
Finally, we know the shift to mostly remote delivery is taking up much of your time, particularly if you did not offer remote courses previously. For this reason, you might consider adjusting your assessment activities. Programs do need to engage in meaningful program student learning outcomes assessment, but you might choose to focus your efforts more than usual, for example, assess one PSLO, rather than three.
As always, the AAC is here if you need any support. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to Rachel Graham, Chair, Faculty Senate Academic Assessment Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your committed excellence to assessment at our University!
