The mission of the New England Educational Assessment Network (NEean) is to enhance student learning and development by promoting and supporting evidence-based assessment.


In support of this mission, NEean is guided by these values:

Student success/Student learning

Multidisciplinary:  Meet faculty where they are

Institutional Inclusiveness/Diversity

Scholarship/Professional development

Community/Collaboration/Collegiality


2019 Conferences and Professional Development Opportunities


 Summer Assessment and Learning Institute

May 21 - 22, 2019 at Keene State College in Keene, NH


The NEean Summer Assessment and Learning Institute supports individual faculty seeking to advance teaching and learning by working on course and curriculum re-design; and supports teams of faculty and administrators as they link evidence of student learning improvements as well as course and curriculum adjustments to accreditation expectations.  Participants choose their conference track in which to immerse themselves in a retreat like setting.


Equity and Learning Assessment: 

Inextricably Linked for Student Success and Social Justice

Tia Brown McNair

Vice President, Office of Diversity, Equity, and Student Success; AAC&U

will deliver the Keynote Address 


Institute Tracks

Track A:  Academic Assessment Track for Teams

The Team Track supports college and university faculty and administrators as they strengthen their assessment efforts and link campus assessment practices with curriculum design, delivery, improvement, and accreditation expectations.  Time is given during the two days for institution team meetings to discuss and refine assessment plans, so this track is a powerful retreat from everyday distractions.

Track B:  Expanding your Practices

We have listened to feedback from past Summer Assessment Institute participants, and we introduce a path of presentations and workshops intended to build foundational knowledge to advanced assessment practices.  This track is recommended for individuals who want to network with other assessment professionals and strengthen their own knowledge in the assessment of learning.

Track C:  Upgrading Academic Challenge and Support

How can we ensure we challenge even the striving students, and support the less well-prepared students?  Do you have a population that emerges each year and achieves less well than others?  Or a population that strives and accomplished very well?  NEean offers a deeper dive into pedagogy which emerges by collaborating with faculty members from across New England.  For this workshop, bring an outline or syllabus and a major assignment or exam to work on together.


Schedule (for all tracks):

May 21st:  9:15AM to 8:00PM (continental breakfast available at 8:30AM)

May 22nd:  9:00AM to 2:00PM (breakfast available at 8:00AM)
