About the conference

Conference offerings will include a plenary session that will help participants determine how robust their current assessments are and eight breakout sessions that are geared toward classroom- and program-level assessment of student learning strategies.

There will be opportunities to learn how to develop effective assessment tools and to find out more about assessment resources at WMU and beyond. Networking opportunities will also be provided, as will lunch for registered participants.

Conference participants are encouraged to attend any or all of the sessions and to feel free to come and go as their schedules permit.

The program will also include the announcement of the winners of the University Assessment Steering Committee Assessment Excellence Awards as well as a poster session that will highlight the assessment projects of the 2013-14 Assessment Fellows.
