Assessment Resource Motivating Faculty


Do you need to encourage your faculty to gather evidence of student learning? VISCOM has created an introductory video for the Office of Academic Assessment to serve exactly this purpose. Please feel free to share it with all faculty to help them understand the reasons we look for evidence of student learning. It can be watched here or on the Assessment website.
