Critical Concepts and Trends in Assessment, Accreditation, and Program Review
Access ZOOM Session
Moderated by: J
Assessment professionals speak their own (important) language, and it can be hard to keep up with critical terminology and trends. This session will help you define assessment-related terms (i.e. goals, outcomes, objectives, standards, etc.) and will provide an overview of assessment and accreditation trends that could impact your institution. We will also provide an overview of how this landscape is in flux due to COVID-19, and how this may impact higher education.
- Use your institution’s assessment-related terminology appropriately and with confidence.
- Differentiate between goals, outcomes, objectives, standards, competencies, benchmarks, and direct and indirect measures.
- Discuss trends in regional and disciplinary accreditation and their implications.
- Explain how accreditors are advising institutions and adjusting policies to deal with COVID-19.
