Event Description

How to Demonstrate Co-Curricular Program Success Through Effective Assessments

Assessing student learning outcomes is an undervalued area of higher education, especially in the area of co-curricular programs. Campus officials and those working in admissions and financial aid often fail to grasp how important these programs can be to students’ overall success. So what’s the best way to change their minds? Through the use of sound assessments that will provide quantifiable evidence that even naysayers can’t refute!

In this action-packed audio presentation with student success expert Paz Oliverez, learn how to make a case for the value co-curricular programs can add to your students’ degrees. Oliverez will explain how to use program reviews and self-studies to guide your assessment efforts. Plus, she’ll arm you with samples of surveys, student learning outcomes, assessment plans, and more—to employ in your advocacy for these programs. You will learn to use Spurlock and Feder’s (2012) Culture of Evidence Continuum matrix to evaluate the current culture of evidence in your division—so you can see what’s working, and what’s not. And you’ll gain insights into how to determine which evidence-based solutions your campus officials are most likely to support.

After attending this audio event, you will know the steps you need to take to prove the value of your co-curricular programs on student development, learning, and success. You’ll discover, not only strategies that will gauge the effectiveness of your program, but also techniques for using assessment data to inform planning and decision-making.
