38
lmendersby@ByeByeRyan Welcome Ryan! Happy to see you here! #saass
39
lmendersbyQ1: What does it mean to have a 'capacity for assessment'? What might assessment capacity look like for your colleagues/campus? #saass
40
lmendersby@joy_hoffman Sure do! Follow along at #saass (Student Affairs Assessment).
41
stephaniemzQ1: Access to the right "tools" - people, time, understanding, etc. A lot of people think they are assessing and they aren't.
#saass
42
ErinSimpErin Simpson, Assessment Committee for Student Affairs, University of Oklahoma...also lurking and multitasking #saass
43
Cool_BeansMT Right back at you, @lmendersby! Happy to be able to join in today! #saass
44
lmendersby@ErinSimp Happy to see you here Erin! Thanks for joining! #saass
45
FederFedsQ1 Capacity is assessment knowledge, resources, the ability to do quality assessment #saass
46
lmendersby@stephaniemz How do you decide which tools are the 'right' ones? #saass
47
joy_hoffman@lmendersby #saass buy-in from community, space, resources, knowledge/skills (or someone to teach/coach), admin support really key (buy-in)
48
lmendersbyRT @joy_hoffman: @lmendersby #saass buy-in from community, space, resources, knowledge/skills (or someone to teach/coach), admin support really key (buy-in)
49
lmendersby@FederFeds You raise a similar point to @stephaniemz - which resources are you referring to? #saass
50
stephaniemz@lmendersby Q1: Depends on what you're trying to assess. People are assessment happy but don't always have the plan.
#saass
51
JoeBooksLevy@stephaniemz good pt; opposite is true too - people DON'T think they have experience w/ assessment, when they do the work on the reg #saass
52
NotAnnieButAnneQ1: For me there's a big difference between having the tools/resources/buy-in and feeling like I have access/authority. #saass
53
FederFedsQ1 I suppose the most important resource is staff time, but it could also be things like data tools, collection software, etc. #saass
54
CijiAnnQ1: Having capacity = knowledge, skills, & resources to implement assmt, interpret data, report/share & USE 2 inform decision making #SAASS
55
lmendersbyTell us more! MT @NotAnnieButAnne: Q1:Theres big difference b/t having tools/resources/buy-in & feeling like I have access/authority #saass
56
Cool_BeansQ1 - capacity involves individual competencies and the degree to which the admin systems are structured around collecting data #saass
57
JoeBooksLevyInteresting point, @NotAnnieButAnne. Brings up the question of who coordinates/controls capacity efforts #saass
58
FederFeds@cool_beans I think that's a great way to describe it #saass
59
SusewoozQ1: Capacity = do you really need to assess this, or are you just assessment-happy. #SAass
60
joy_hoffman@lmendersby - I think varies depending on where instit is at and type of assessment #saass
61
stephaniemzThis!! RT @Susewooz: Q1: Capacity = do you really need to assess this, or are you just assessment-happy. #saass
62
lmendersby@joy_hoffman Absolutely! Important to recognize the strengths and challenges people have with assessment at your campus #saass
63
lmendersbyRT @Susewooz: Q1: Capacity = do you really need to assess this, or are you just assessment-happy. #SAass
64
lmendersbyHow do you tell the difference? RT @Susewooz: Q1: Capacity = do you really need to assess this, or are you just assessment-happy. #saass
65
lmendersbyQ2: How are you starting to build assessment capacity at your campus? Is this happening? Why or why not? #saass
66
RachelHLunaQ1: Capacity is about having the tools & resources to not only implement assessment but also educate about it #saass
67
JoeBooksLevyWORD! MT @CijiAnn capacity = knowledge, skills, & resources to implement assmt, interpret data, report/share & USE 2 inform decisions #saass
68
NotAnnieButAnneQ1a: I think @JoeBrooksLevy said it best, who coordinates/controls the process. #saass
69
lmendersbyRT @RachelHLuna: Q1: Capacity is about having the tools & resources to not only implement assessment but also educate about it #saass
70
lmendersbyQ2: I've been working with individual colleagues on creating & refining learning outcomes for new programming. Great learning! #saass
71
Susewooz@lmendersby Million$? - I am not sure but I know that stdts appreciate it/respond when they know you actually NEED their input. #SAass
72
joy_hoffman#saass Huge difference btwn prog eval, prog satisfaction, and learning outcomes assess. Each take diff level of skills and provide diff data
73
CijiAnnIndeed! RT@RachelHLuna: Q1: Capacity is about having the tools & resources to not only implement assessment but also educate about it #saass
74
lmendersby@Susewooz I've tried putting that budget request in - no dice. How do you communicate assessment results back to the students? #saass
75
lmendersbyRT @joy_hoffman: #saass Huge difference btwn prog eval, prog satisfaction, and learning outcomes assess. Each take diff level of skills and provide diff data
76
lmendersbyQ3: Judging by the quiet, it seems like building assessment capacity is a tough one. What's your biggest challenge here? #saass
77
CijiAnnQ2: Assmt plan for the dept., SA & Dept. Assmt. Committeess, intentional pro dev &, I'm charged w/ dev. resources/library/webinars #SAASS
78
NotAnnieButAnneQ2: We are working with a faculty member on a project, feels good to bridge between student and academic sides of the house. #saass
79
lmendersby@CijiAnn Consider yourself on my list of 'brains to be picked about assessment' Ciji! Great stuff! #AssessmentZombie #saass
80
MelissAnnWrightRight on @lmendersby: Individ. consultation is very effective. So often staff in some depts don't even think LOs apply to them #saass #saass
81
Susewooz@lmendersby Only on our 1st class so changes that are/aren't made from feedback are very visible. Transparency is key. #SAass
82
ByeByeRyanQ2: Within the dept (housing) we are using diff tools for assessment - our pro staff has to learn to use them #saass
83
CijiAnn@lmendersby I like my job. :-) Happy to be brain picked! #saass
84
lmendersby@NotAnnieButAnne Great stuff Anne! I was just reading about the importance of involving faculty. How's the project going? #saass
85
ByeByeRyan@NotAnnieButAnne What kind of project? What tools do you plan to use? #saass
86
RachelHLunaQ2: @uopacific Student Life is bldg a culture of assessment: discuss it at every mtg, host #NASPA webinar series viewing, etc. #saass
87
lmendersby@MelissAnnWright Thanks Melissa! What are your best tips for individual consultations around learning outcomes and/or assessment? #saass
88
Cool_BeansQ2-3 - new committee, requring depts to assess 1 signature prgm; bldg resource collection, linking w/ planning - slow pace=challenge #saass
89
lmendersby@ByeByeRyan Teaching staff to use tools is tough! The @CampusLabsCo webinars are a great place to start! #saass
90
joy_hoffman#saass learning outcomes should bediscussed/written BEFORE event/program. Rubrics used to assess LEVELS of learning not just did it happen?
91
ByeByeRyan@RachelHLuna @TTUHousing is as well - the program forms our student staff complete have a self-eval portion of the program #saass
92
JoeBooksLevyRight on, @RachelHLuna! Making it a bullet point/agenda item at standing meetings communicates importance & on-going nature of assmt #saass
93
CijiAnnQ3: challenges = every1 comes to the dept. w/ diff skills/knowledge,there is no guarantee nething will happen w/ the assmt info #saass
94
lmendersby@Cool_Beans Love the new committee! How are you helping them decide what program to assess and when? #saass
95
lmendersbyRT @joy_hoffman: #saass learning outcomes should bediscussed/written BEFORE event/program. Rubrics used to assess LEVELS of learning not just did it happen?
96
SusewoozThis + lack of staff. RT @ByeByeRyan Q3: IMO one of the biggest challenges is teaching staff to use tools, and get buy-in #saass
97
stephaniemzQ3: I work for an office that gets hired to do the assessments of other offices :) #saass
98
MelissAnnWright@lmendersby: Sometimes simple is best: make a list with staff of all the areas they offer learning & then pick 1 to assess. #saass
99
lmendersby@Susewooz @ByeByeRyan Other duties as assigned? :) #saass
100
ByeByeRyan@Susewooz I also think staff is scared that they won't see the results - so they hesitate #saass
