Assessment Education Workshops
The Office of Institutional Research and Assessment sponsors a number of events and/or workshops each year. Staff also are available to present specifically-tailored workshops on a number of topics. If you are interested in arranging a workshop for your specific department, office, or organization, please contact us.
Typically, assessment education sessions are held monthly. Each session has a distinct topic, provides an overview of different assessment methods, and offers ample opportunity to consider practical application. Please note: Monday sessions are focused on data collection; Wednesday sessions are focused on data analysis. All sessions are held from 3:30 - 4:45 p.m. in Berlin (Thomas Commons).
