12. OBJECTIVE 4: Importance What assessment is NOT. Assessment is not faculty performance evaluation. Assessment is NOT the forms that you turn in. Assessment is NOT course evaluations.

13. WHY ASSESSMENT? 1. to improve student learning. 2. assessment should be a faculty tool. Are students meeting out definition of college educated people? Are students meeting our definition of psychology educated people?

14. CAN I HELP? My job is NOT to tell you if students are learning. My job is to help gather info and get it to you so you can make appropriate determinations. It is your job to give information meaning and use it to improve student learning.

15. To me assessment of student learning is all about curriculum and pedagogy. My overriding goal is to develop a direct connection between/among: assessment, curriculum, and pedagogy Many other uses: Curriculum review/change Select audiences External bodies

16. If you have questions about student learning, we can work together to help answer the question: How well do our students write, coming in and going out? How rigorous is our curriculum? Etc…

17. OBJECTIVE 5: Plans My goals for the coming year center around (1) communicating information about our students and their learning and (2) having faculty discuss what the data might mean and how we can improve. That’s it!!!!!

18. EXAMPLES How do our students perceive our rigor in comparison to students are comparable institutions? Do our students critically think to the extent we think appropriate? (actually you). Can our students apply basic ethical principles to our satisfaction?

19. IDEAS Informal chats. Maybe late afternoon?? Lunch conversations. Faculty forums. Faculty meetings. If anyone has ideas, I would appreciate you sharing.
