In her March 2012 visit to DU, Dr. Pat Hutchings gave two presentations, a morning session titled "Reflections on DU and the National Assessment Scene," and a keynote presentation titled, "Reports, Audiences, and Impact: Maximizing the Benefits of Academic Assessment." Both presentations were designed to invite participants to reflect on the progress made in their efforts to conduct program-level assessment and to gain a sense of where DU is situated relative to progress in the assessment of student learning outcomes on the national level. A video of the keynote presentation following an introduction by Janette Benson, is available for viewing below.
Those who attended both presentations found the following handout very useful for thinking about how to evaluate progress on program-level assessment.
