Assessing Geoscience Programs: Theory and Practice
February 22-24, 2009
Carleton College, Northfield MN
Departments are increasingly called upon to assess the impact of their programs on students and to measure the degree to which they meet stated goals. This workshop will showcase the methods and instruments that geoscience departments are using for this assessment, as well as providing opportunities to learn more about evaluation theory and practice from experts in the field. We will focus on using assessment to meet your own goals, as well as your institution's, and on increasing the quality and efficiency of assessment.
