About the A-Team

About the Assessment Team (A-Team)

Vision: To create a culture of continual inquiry and refinement through assessment that facilitates the improvement of teaching and learning.

Mission: To coach and support faculty, staff, and administration about assessment efforts on campus; to serve in an advisory capacity to administration and faculty around assessment tools, projects, and policies.

The A-Team is comprised of a diverse group of faculty, staff, and managers from across the college who are interested in learning about and actively participating in outreach and creating assessment-focused professional development for their peers. The team meets approximately twice a month to plan outreach, professional development opportunities, and to engage in conversations about current practices and trends in student learning assessment.
