SWAAC Survey

The System Wide Academic Assessment Committee (SWAAC), on which a number of OIRA staff serve, will be offering a system-wide workshop in fall 2024 focused on interpreting results from assessing student learning to support program improvements. This topic was selected based on interest expressed by faculty in a survey last year. We would like your feedback on what format would be most useful to you for this and future workshops. Please click this link to fill out a brief survey. Thank you for helping to shape our next workshop!

Our last system-wide workshop in fall 2023 focused on aligning assessment activities to program learning outcomes. Good alignment is an important foundation for being able to interpret and use assessment results. If you couldn’t make the past workshop, resources from the workshop can still be found here.

Interpreting results from assessing student learning is a key strategy that supports reflecting on evidence from assessment, making recommendations, and using assessment results to improve courses and programs. These steps are part of a complete assessment cycle, as shown in the diagram below.
