The mission of the Office of Assessment & Evaluation is to design, promote, and facilitate a culture of continuous improvement through assessment and evaluation. Assessment and evaluation at VT are reflective practices incorporating systematic investigation that lead to evidence-based decision making. This mission is achieved in collaboration with partners across the university and the broader education community through practices that encourage innovation in student learning and the learning environment.
Each academic degree program, undergraduate and graduate, should measure one student learning outcome that either has not yet been measured or has been indicated through a previous action plan as needing to be re-measured. By June 30, 2014, summary findings (qualitative and/or quantitative) should be collected and entered into WEAVE as well as a reflection (indicated in the action plan) of what these data mean. Contact Steve Culver (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have questions.
Come and discuss evaluation with experienced evaluation professionals and with others who are interested in learning more about evaluation. The general topic for this session will be recent attendees at the American Evaluation Association annual conference discussing what they saw and heard there.
The roundtable will be from noon to 1 p.m. Oct. 27 in Room B of the Graduate Life Center. Register here.
