Discussing the Results of Assessment
Regardless of who analyzes your data, your course and program level SLO results, as well as the entire assessment process, should be discussed among faculty at your department meetings to determine the further meaning behind the results and what actions to take. At the meetings, faculty should share copies of the assessment instrument (e.g., rubric, exam questions, survey), the assessment plan, and the results with those involved in the discussion.
Facilitators will share previously submitted Results of Assessment and keep a record of departmental discussions in their 20% Workbook. All faculty can draw on information in the following resources, which include questions that can assist in creating and sustaining a lively and thought-provoking discussion with faculty regarding every aspect of the assessment process for a course or program.
