Subject: Seeking feedback
I have recently been appointed to lead our new Office of Assessment and Innovation and Washington State University. We are developing a process for helping our programs at WSU assess their assessment, and in that process we are developing criteria and a template, doing our best to align it with principles of good practice and the new NWCCU standards. It would be a tremendous help to talk about the process and invite some early feedback on our efforts now, and perhaps, if we are successful, gaining an endorsement in principle.
I recognize that improved learning outcomes and reaccreditation is the endorsement that matters most, but I am seeking some guidance and support to help WSU programs help the institution (and our students!) in achieving those ends. Is it possible to speak with somebody in advance of the gathering in Seattle in November?
