This year's theme is "Assessment as Inquiry"

In the keynote address, Martha Stassen urges recentering assessment around questions generated by the faculty themselves. As Associate Provost for Assessment and Educational Effectiveness at UMass-Amherst, Dr. Stassen guides assessment efforts by providing academic departments with the resources and expertise to explore what *they* want to know about their own students’ learning and development. Come to Fall Forum to hear her discuss the philosophy and methods of moving away from “assurance of learning” to “assessment as inquiry,” using examples from her own campus.  

A sample of this year's presentations and workshops includes:
