The Academy for Assessment of Student Learning offers HLC member institutions a four-year sequence of events and interactions that are focused on student learning, targeted at accelerating and advancing efforts to assess and improve student learning, and designed to build institution-wide commitment to assessment of student learning. In 2011, Williston State College began participating in the Assessment Academy. The Instructional Effectiveness Team, also known as AQIP 1 Helping Students Learn, plays a key role in managing the Assessment Academy Project. Listed below is the different groups that have or will attend Assessment Academy events.
The first team went to the Higher Learning Commission meeting in October 2010. The result of this meeting is that WSC became a member of the Assessment Academy.
The second team attended the Assessment Academy in June 2011. The meeting was our first as a member of the Assessment Academy. During the three days, the team listened to HLC members and mentors outline the assessment process. The primary benefit and result from the meeting was the initial setup of WSC's assessment plan.
The third team will be attending the Results Forum that is taking place in June, 2015. This will be a chance for Institutional Teams to receive consultation and critique from mentors, network and share good practices with other institutions.
