Ball State University Assessment Workbook  Site Reviews(0)
At Ball State University, the staff of the Offices of Academic Assessment and Institutional Research work cooperatively with departments to help facilitate many different types of assessment projects. We work with faculty members on a one-to-one basis and in workshop settings. This workbook grew out of our workshops. Our workshops assist faculty members to design assessment plans and carry out assessment activities for their own departments. Although Ball State conducts many university-wide assessment projects, this workbook is designed to facilitate the many assessment activities which are discipline-specific and carried out by departments and colleges. Departmental assessment at Ball State is essentially divided into two categories: General Studies and the major. The workbook attempts to illustrate the uses and advantages of different assessment techniques as they apply to both of these categories. The initial chapter provides guidelines for designing your assessment plan. The second chapter discusses the development of departmental goals and objectives for learning–the basis for assessment activities. The remaining chapters concentrate on specific assessment activities–developing tests, designing questionnaires, using institutional data. The focus of each chapter is on the way you can use a particular technique for assessment purposes. What can a survey tell you about your program? How is a test for assessment different from a course exam? Most of the chapters include a question and answer section. The chapters also include a variety of exercises and checklists. The checklists are not meant to be exhaustive–they are meant to be suggestive–to help you organize your thinking. In addition, they should allow you to move back and forth through the chapters so that you can focus on what’s most relevant for you. In keeping with the theme of a workbook, we have kept the narrative to a minimum. The workbook was written by the staff of the Offices of Academic Assessment and Institutional Research. Several of the chapters were individually authored, while others were the responsibility of the staff as a whole. Peg Shaffer, Department Assessment Coordinator, had responsibility for keeping the project on track, initiating the group chapters, and giving the workbook a consistent overall look. We hope the workbook is useful to faculty and administrators responsible for assessment. We intend for the workbook to evolve over time and we plan to use it as the basis for our future workshops. We welcome your comments and suggestions to increase its usefulness. The staff of the Offices of Academic Assessment and Institutional Research are always available to work with faculty members on assessment projects and to conduct faculty workshops.

American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment  Site Reviews(0)
The American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment is a high-visibility effort to address global warming by garnering institutional commitments to neutralize greenhouse gas emissions, and to accelerate the research and educational efforts of higher education to equip society to re-stabilize the earth’s climate. Building on the growing momentum for leadership and action on climate change, the Presidents Climate Commitment provides a framework and support for America’s colleges and universities to go climate neutral. The Commitment recognizes the unique responsibility that institutions of higher education have as role models for their communities and in training the people who will develop the social, economic and technological solutions to reverse global warming. Presidents signing the Commitment are pledging to eliminate their campuses’ greenhouse gas emissions over time. This involves: Completing an emissions inventory Within two years, setting a target date and interim milestones for becoming climate neutral. Taking immediate steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by choosing from a list of short-term actions. Integrating sustainability into the curriculum and making it part of the educational experience. Making the action plan, inventory and progress reports publicly available. The college and university presidents and chancellors who are joining and leading the Commitment believe that exerting leadership in addressing climate change will stabilize and reduce their long-term energy costs, attract excellent students and faculty, attract new sources of funding, and increase the support of alumni and local communities.

Academic Rigor: At The Heart of College Access and Success  Site Reviews(0)
America’s economic and social well-being is increasingly dependent upon the capacity of our public education system to prepare all students for college and high-performance careers. With almost 80 percent of today’s fastest-growing jobs requiring some postsecondary education,1 all students—regardless of their race/ethnicity, gender, socio-economic or disability status—need to complete an academically rigorous high school curriculum in order to be well-equipped for productive work and civic life. Only about half of high school graduates today are academically prepared for college-level courses, and far too many require at least some remedial work in reading, writing, and/or mathematics. Students who require remediation, notably those in need of remedial reading, are significantly less likely to obtain a college degree. Low-Academic Rigor At the Heart of College Access and Success A College Readiness Issue Brief from the Pathways to College Network income and minority students, students with disabilities, and those who are the first in their families to go to college, are often unprepared for and discouraged from taking rigorous academic courses in high school. It is therefore imperative that all young people—especially students traditionally underrepresented in postsecondary education—are prepared to succeed in entry-level college coursework without remediation. Education research is unambiguous in concluding that a rigorous academic curriculum is indispensable for all students. Students who take high-level courses in high school, including advanced mathematics, laboratory science, and a world language, are more likely to enroll in and complete a bachelor’s degree program than those who do not. Completion of a rigorous academic program in high school is especially beneficial for African American and Latino students in terms of increased college-going and completion rates.

Annoted Bibliography: Perspectives in Postsecondary Education Programs and Student Support Intervent  Site Reviews(0)
For the past eight months research has been conducted looking at the literature on college success programs. Specifically, only those programs that have conducted an in-depth evaluation, and thus have demonstrated their effectiveness in retaining and graduating traditionally underrepresented students, were considered in this search. This population would include ethnic minority, first-generation, low-income, English as a second language, and “non-traditional” adult learners, commuters, academically underprepared and part-time students. The resources utilized for the search were the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC), First Search, OCLC, and Article First, as well as resources from the Pell Institute. Additionally, the web sites of the institutions that were highlighted in the articles were researched. The criteria focused on were student engagement—both academic and social—and student satisfaction, grade point average (GPA), retention into the sophomore year, graduation, and the possibility of entering a graduate or professional program, as well as the program’s role on the campus and institutional commitment. Generally, the research garnered few postsecondary retention programs that had been thoroughly evaluated. Rather, much of what was found were no more than descriptive reports or articles offering recommendations for implementing activities that would effect an increase in student retention. However, there are many institutions that are having very positive results. There are several approaches to teaching and learning, and ultimately student retention that currently are being utilized: summer bridge programs, extended orientation programs, freshman seminars, and learning communities. Some institutions are utilizing “cutting edge” techniques, such as the “Personal Development Portfolio” at Bridgewater College in Virginia. Other institutions implement programs specifically committed to increasing minority retention in the hard sciences and mathematics, like the Emerging Scholars Program and the Meyerhoff Program. Still others institutions successfully recruit and retain minority students by acknowledging their backgrounds, needs, and expectations and then taking action to accommodate them. The Puente Project, for instance, addresses the needs of first-generation Latino college students from a cultural context. Again, while many of the institutions in this bibliography have not conducted an in-depth evaluation of their programs, it is clear that their efforts are indeed having a positive impact on their student retention. -- The Pathways to College Network is an alliance of major foundations, non profit organizations, educational institutions, and the U.S. Department of Education, working together to improve college access and success for large numbers of underserved youth.

Associat5ion of Canadian Deans of Education  Site Reviews(0)
The Association of Canadian Deans of Education (ACDE) brings together the Canadian deans and directors of education to focus on the governance and development of faculties and departments of education. The Association of Canadian Deans of Education developed this General Accord to represent the agreement of the signatories to work together in advancing education in Canada based on the goals, values, and principles articulated here. By signing the General Accord, deans, directors, and chairs of education add to ACDE’s institutional capacity to advocate for positive change in public education in Canada. Those signing the General Accord become part of a network with shared commitments and values relative to education and are contributing to national, public discourse on the importance of public education in developing and sustaining a civil society. The General Accord represents the first stage in an ongoing relationship among universities and university-colleges in Canada that are publicly funded or are members of AUCC, and that offer initial teacher education. Future stages are envisioned as agreements on principles in specific areas of interest, the first such document being the Accord on the Principles of Initial Teacher Education. Areas of interest for further accords might be graduate education, continuing professional education, teacher mobility and the portability of credentials, and Aboriginal education, among others.
