_annemiekeQ1 cont'd: Although I've also seen a few campuses create a strategic plan for assessmnt, & call that an "Assessment Plan" #saass
20
lmendersbyRT @_annemieke: Q1: An assess plan = map of how assess activity relates to the bigger picture...plus logistics! #saass
21
lmendersby@_annemieke How high level are we talking? How much detail do you need to include about the 'how' of assessment in the plan? #saass

34
rossmcmillanQ 2: transparency, coordination and collaboration #saass
35
_annemiekeQ2: A shared plan format means you can identify overlaps & gaps between dpts - and SHARE data where helpful #saass
36
lmendersbySo true! RT @_annemieke: Q2: A shared plan format means you can identify overlaps & gaps between dpts - and SHARE data where helpful #saass

lmendersbyQ4: Who's responsible for creating an assessment plan? Is the work shared between departments/divisions and/or staff? #saass
53
JoeBooksLevyDifferent example of assessment plan - divisional standpoint in relation to LO framework from CSU-Fullerton: http://t.co/gLXemjBE #saass
54
_annemiekeTHIS. MT @Cool_Beans: Q3: When possible, I identify specific items on surveys/other sources & map directly to LO's, Obj's, or metrics #saass
55
Cool_BeansQ4: Inst. specific. I prefer collaborative at the division level, but even unit level is better than zilch #saass
56
_annemiekeQ4: Assessment committee should review other campuses to decide on plan format - no need to reinvent the wheel! #saass
57
lmendersbyRT @Cool_Beans: Q4: Inst. specific. I prefer collaborative at the division level, but even unit level is better than zilch #saass

rossmcmillanQ4: IMO ideally collaborative with staff & students across depts via assessment cmte (but in the end, it might just be you) #saass
60
lmendersbyQ5: How often does your assessment plan get updated? When does your plan get reviewed? (Assessing the assessment as it were). #saass
61
JoeBooksLevyQ4: Committee/directors reviewing can help w/ plan format consistency & identify potential collaborations across units #saass
62
shawnbrackettFirst order of focus group setup: kill and remove all the moths in the room. #saass #grody
63
_annemiekeQ5: Most campuses I see create and review plans during summer months. #saass
64
lmendersbyRT @_annemieke: Q5: Most campuses I see create and review plans during summer months. #saass
65
lmendersbyTime for a final thought (FT). Assessment planning sounds like an overwhelming undertaking. What would be an 'easy' first step? #saass
66
Cool_BeansQ5 - Meta-assessment is still rare. Happens at basic lvl in Strat Planning sometimes. Assmt Plan should include Meta-A regularly #saass
67
JoeBooksLevyQ5: Term review can be helpful to check-in/adjust if needed. Careful not to change often since people plan efforts around these! #saass
68
_annemiekeQ5: I wish more campuses would check to see if the plan was executed as outlined. #saass
69
_annemiekeFT: Go retro - plot in what you've already done. Seeing it in the plan will make you feel like you've made progress. #saass
70
JoeBooksLevyFT: ID stories needing told w/ data (LOs, strat plan, prog success), ID assessments for efforts, look to collaborate, schedule & go! #saass
71
lmendersbyRT @_annemieke: FT: Go retro - plot in what you've already done. Seeing it in the plan will make you feel like you've made progress. #saass

74
Cool_BeansFT: Mult. ways: EOY reflection - what data did u need?; Baby-steps - assess 1 thing now or redesign 1 thing to collect data upfront #saass
75
