Lloyd Bond, Recently retired Senior Scholar at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. Cosponsored by QuIRK (Quantitative Inquiry, Reasoning, and Knowledge).

As Carleton implements a new curriculum we will want to make sure that it meets the goals set forth in the College's mission statement. While potentially exciting and helpful, this movement toward assessment also presents challenges and risks. Lloyd Bond, recently retired Senior Scholar at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, is an accomplished scholar of assessment. Following on early work focused on K-12 education (including the racial achievement gap and cultural test biases), Bond has extended his studies to higher education. He will discuss what the national trend toward assessment and accountability means for colleges like Carleton.
