Identifying Effective Assessment Technologies

Monday, January 29 | 2:15PM–3:00PM CT | Preservation Hall, Second Floor
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
How do institutions integrate student success and learning outcomes data? Institutions excel at gathering success data like retention and graduation rates. Yet student learning outcome data lags in comparison because users are often overwhelmed by the data collected. Multiple users seek data aggregated at different levels (course, program, college, institution), but the flexibility to roll up data is still emerging. In this session, we will collaborate to identify technologies that can streamline data collection, integration, analysis, application, and communication. Participants will contribute to a developing technology taxonomy to synthesize assessment data into meaningful, relatable formats for various institution stakeholders.

Outcomes: Analyze how technology tools can solve assessment challenges * Classify technology tools and their assessment uses * Develop criteria to evaluate technology for specific uses
