Faculty and staff members join forces on ‘Engaged Assessment of Student Learning’ presentation

Dr. Jessica Hajek, Chair of the Humanities and Social Science Department, and Madi Taber, Director of Assessment and Accreditation and Special Assistant to the President, attended the Texas Association for Higher Education Assessment (TxAHEA) Annual Conference in San Antonio on Sept. 25-27. The two presented case studies that focused on three kinds of summative assessments implemented in general education and OLLU’s first-year experience course. The presentation contributed to an ongoing conversation of how faculty might better engage students at all levels of the learning process through assessment, while also demonstrating how assessment professionals can help faculty dial up their existing assessment methods to be more engaging.
