About this Workshop

This interactive forum offers a facilitated experience for program teams to analyze and improve their current assessment and evaluation processes. Over the course of two days, participants will work together on a series of activities that include short “best practice” presentations, peer evaluation of program assessment plans and self-evaluation of team materials.

This workshop emphasizes program teamwork and participation; therefore, we cannot accept individual registrations. For maximum effect, teams should have three members but no more than five and must register together. Individual registrations will not be accepted. Registration is limited so form your team and register early.

To maximize the experience, we recommend that at least one team member has attended the Fundamentals of Program Assessment Workshop (FPAW) or the Institute for the Development of Excellence in Assessment (IDEAL).
