lmendersbyRT @FederFeds: Can't make it to #saass today, but if you are interested in good assessment convo, head over now! 12-1pm EST!
6
MattDeegFirst, I try to get it in the hands of the folks who asked for it...and also put it in their language. #saass
7
lmendersbyLet's get started. Who's ready to talk assessment today? Please take a moment to introduce yourself! #saass
8
MattDeegBeing a good assessor includes being a good (and versatile) communicator. #saass
9
MattDeegMatt Deeg, aka "Eager Beaver" from @lmendersby, checking in from North Florida. #saass
10
EvanHeiserHi everyone in #saass - Evan Heiser from Elon University here!
11
lmendersby@EvanHeiser Good to see you back Evan! #saass
12
shawnbrackettGetting ready to learn and share about assessment! #saass
13
UOAdvDirNow!! RT @lmendersby: Hi all! Time for another round of the student affairs assessment #saass chat. Let's get our chat on! #saass
14
lmendersby@shawnbrackett Happy to have you Shawn. Thanks for joining! #saass
15
JoeBooksLevyJoe Levy from Campus Labs here, but multitasking :) #saass
16
shawnbrackettI'm Shawn Brackett at Texas Tech University. I work in housing and academic initiatives. Hi there! #saass
17
lmendersby@JoeBooksLevy Thanks for joining Joe. Happy to be included on your to do list today. :) #saass
18
EvanHeiserExcited to see some new names today! #saass
19
lmendersbyI'll be tweeting out questions labelled as Q1, Q2, etc. Don't forget to include the question number with your response. Q1 up soon! #saass
20
JoeBooksLevyIndeed happy to be here talking assessment with such friendly & enthusiastic folks! #saass
21
lmendersbyQ1: What's the top/first thing you're looking to convey when you share assessment results? What's your key message? #saass
22
JoeBooksLevyQ1: What you now know, why it's important to your audience, and what you're going to do about it #saass
23
MattDeegQ1: For me, mostly about proving worth of a program/department. If we're adding value, should be able to show/assess it. #saass
24
EvanHeiserQ1: tough question - I would agree with @JoeBooksLevy, what you learned through the assessment is first up for me! #saass
25
RachelHLunaHi #saass! Sorry for my tardiness! Rachel here at @uopacific looking fwd to today's chat!
26
lmendersby@RachelHLuna Good to see you Rachel. Thanks for coming! #saass
27
MattDeegQ1: Also depends on type of assessment. If needs assessment, what @joebookslevy said. If program, more showing worth/growth opps. #saass
28
RachelHLunaQ1: I like to use a "What? So What? Now What?" framework in presenting assessment results #saass
29
lmendersbyOne of my faves! RT @RachelHLuna: Q1: I like to use a "What? So What? Now What?" framework in presenting assessment results #saass
30
shawnbrackettQ1: I want to convey themes and aberrations (i.e. what does the data consistently tell us and what is unusual?). #saass
31
lmendersbyRT @shawnbrackett: Q1: I want to convey themes and aberrations (i.e. what does the data consistently tell us and what is unusual?). #saass
32
JoeBooksLevyGood pt, @MattDeeg. Tho, results should be viewed universally so program-spec. data could be considered 4 other areas, outcomes, etc. #saass
33
lmendersbyQ2: Who sees your assessment results and/or report first (after you)? Why? #saass
34
MattDeegQ2: Generally supervisor. Even if report is for another, they need to know what's going on/being learned and check for consistency #saass
35
EvanHeiserQ2: First is someone else who isn't involved in the process to proofread and make sure conclusions make sense #saass
36
JoeBooksLevyQ2: Along with @EvanHeiser's note, I'd share w/ others involved w/ process - make sure you're presenting all the info you should be #saass
37
pshefmanLate to the #saass chat glad to be on even if only part time today
38
lmendersbyRT @EvanHeiser: Q2: First is someone else who isn't involved in the process to proofread and make sure conclusions make sense #saass
39
lmendersby@pshefman Thanks for coming Pamelyn! Glad you're here! #saass

mods_minecraftRT @pshefman (Pamelyn Shefman)Late to the #saass chat glad to be on even if only part time today: Late to the #saass chat glad t... #tfb
41
lmendersbyQ3: Are there any results you don't/won't share as part of your assessment reports? Why or why not? #saass
42
cosborne314Q2. my supervisor, then my coworkers- typically results presented at staff meetings to discuss action #saass
43
EvanHeiserQ3: don't assess questions you don't want to share the results about - just asking for something bad to happen #saass
44
MattDeegQ3: Unless completely unrelated, should always share all. Results can prove or disprove something. You can act on both. #saass
45
cz2dayQ12: I post summaries online...the same exec summaries that go to upper mgmt. Full reports stay internal. #saass
46
cz2dayQ3: share all I can to prove effectiveness or to justify change. #saass
47
cosborne314Q3. I share all results- can help to determine if we're asking the wrong questions or if programs need adjustment #saass
48
JoeBooksLevyDitto to @mattdeeg & @evanheiser; only omit data/results if unrelated/not relevant to audience of report/sharing #saass
49
shawnbrackettQ3: I want to be as transparent as ethically possible. That said, when data can identify individuals, I limit information. #saass
50
pshefmanQ3 avoid personal information or inappropriate to what is in the assessment, however wonder if irrelevant may tell you something #saass
51
lmendersbyRT @cosborne314: Q3. I share all results- can help to determine if we're asking the wrong questions or if programs need adjustment #saass
52
lmendersbyRT @MattDeeg: Q3: Unless completely unrelated, should always share all. Results can prove or disprove something. You can act on both. #saass
53
lmendersbyQ4: What does sharing assessment results look like at your institution and/or in your department? Paper reports? Posters? Emails? #saass
54
lmendersby@cosborne314 Thanks for joining us Christine. Happy to have you here! #saass
55
EvanHeiserGood point @shawnbrackett! #saass
56
lmendersby@cz2day Good to see you back Craig! #saass
57
cosborne314forgot my intro- Christine Osborne, Chapel Program Specialist @uopacific #saass
58
MattDeegQ4: All about the paper reports. And sometimes ppts. I'm bad at making data "pretty". #saass
59
EvanHeiserQ4: mostly paper reports such as end of year reports, and program updates in meetings #saass
60
shawnbrackett@pshefman That's a good point--how do we define "irrelevant?" #saass
61
lmendersbyRT @shawnbrackett: @pshefman That's a good point--how do we define "irrelevant?" #saass
62
cz2dayQ4: All your suggested methods, but it does not seem like enough. #saass
63
cosborne314Q4. all of the above- resuls are updated online, i write reports and create a visual display with charts and graphs #saass
64
shawnbrackettQ4: Digital-only for me (PDFs usually, PPTs occassionally, Prezi to show relationships). #saass
65
lmendersbyHow so Craig? RT @cz2day: Q4: All your suggested methods, but it does not seem like enough. #saass
66
lmendersbyRT @shawnbrackett: Q4: Digital-only for me (PDFs usually, PPTs occassionally, Prezi to show relationships). #saass
67
pshefman@shawnbrackett my first "concern" might be we asked the wrong question... #saass
68
RachelHLunaQ4: @uopacific Student Life publishes assessment reports online: http://t.co/CuW0Ug7W I appreciate the transparency #saass
69
lmendersbyRT @RachelHLuna: Q4: @uopacific Student Life publishes assessment reports online: http://t.co/rhwStYtu I appreciate the transparency #saass
70
EvanHeiser@RachelHLuna Thanks for sharing! I am hoping we can start doing something similar in the near future here! #saass
71
pshefmanQ4 working in assessment I would love to know more ways to speak to everyone - want data to be where we are even in the "clouds" #saass
72
RachelHLunaQ4: We've also just gone thru WASC re-accreditation process, so posters (electronic and paper) have been prevalent lately #saass
73
cosborne314@RachelHLuna @uopacific I appreciate yourr appreciation of transparency :) I too am a big fan #saass
74
lmendersbyQ5: How often do you share and/or report on results? After each survey? At the end of each term? Once a year? #saass
75
EvanHeiserQ4: Case Western Reserves Institutional Research posts daily info to Twitter through @CaseIR - it is a cool idea! #saass
76
JoeBooksLevySolid online exs from UAA (http://t.co/JDt9X3kW), UAlbany (http://t.co/CAMOdzgO), & CSUF (http://t.co/W3VSeh5S) #saass
77
cz2day@lmendersby not enough good assessment done. Hence, not enough to share. #saass
78

80
MattDeegQ5: Internally, report after each assessment is done. Outside of dept., at end of each term unless asked sooner. #saass
81
cz2dayQ5: most done annually in June. #saass
82
pshefman@EvanHeiser @CaseIR #saass good idea - hope you get lots of re-tweeting!!!
83
lmendersbyGood point. Maybe we need to share processes too. RT @cz2day not enough good assessment done. Hence, not enough to share. #saass
84
RachelHLunaQ5: We have cross-dept assessment teams which follow a timeline to support e/o throughout, including reporting http://t.co/8pNgegJo #saass
85
shawnbrackettQ5: I share once a particular assessment method has been completed and analyzed--not sure about institution. #saass
86
RachelHLunaThis is awesome! RT @EvanHeiser: Q4: Case Western Reserves Institutional Research posts daily info to Twitter through @CaseIR #saass
87
JoeBooksLevyQ5: Poster campaigns around campus (e.g., UNCW, Alfred Univ, UAlbany) allow periodic posting of results/how you use data for change #saass
88
lmendersby@RachelHLuna Sounds like you and I need to chat lots more about assessment Rachel. Thanks for sharing such great stuff! #saass
89
cosborne314Q5. Each semester or more frequently with staff and supervisor, annually for some programs #saass
90
EvanHeiser@RachelHLuna I am going through the site you shared and loving all the information! #jealous #saass
91
JoeBooksLevyQ5: Sharing data points through email (to staff/students) is another way to keep findings relevant & timely before end of yr reports #saass
92
cz2dayMy opinion is too many new sa professionals have assessment fears. I'd like to teach an assess/eval class to address fears #saass
93
pshefman@RachelHLuna Love that... great sharing #saass happening...
94
lmendersbyMe too! MT @cz2day: Too many new sa professionals have assessment fears. I'd like to teach an assess/eval class to address fears #saass
95
EvanHeiser@cz2day Our assessment committee does regular smaller workshops for staff - especially new staff during the summer that work well #saass
96
MattDeeg@cz2day It's true. In part because we suffer through Intro to Research and hate it after that. #saass
97
cosborne314Q5. I also like to review results with staff when planning new or recurring events to adjust our learning outcomes accordingly #saass
98
JoeBooksLevy@cz2day it's not just new SA professionals who fear assessment - education can be beneficial for various positions/experience levels #saass
99
cz2dayDo new sa professionals need assessment mentors outside of class requirements? #saass
100
RachelHLunaAgreed. Count me as one of those folks, unfortunately MT @cz2day: My opinion is too many new sa professionals have assessment fears. #saass
