rossmcmillanHi folks, late arrival to the #saass party - Ross McMillan from York U in sunny Toronto
41
pshefmanQ1 in the work I do: assessment as a full circle and action oriented, evaluation as gaining knowledge #saass
42
BryceEHughesQ1 Recommended reference: Astin (1993) Assessment for Excellence (it's out of print but if you can find it I HIGHLY recommend it) #saass
43
CalErwinYup! äóì@BryceEHughes: Q1 Assessment is what you do; evaluation is what you do with it. #saassäó�
44
FederFedsYes @juddharbin. Ditto. I think the essential component is the use of data and assessment as ONGOING and DYNAMIC #saass
45
NikiRudolphDitto. RT @BryceEHughes: Q1 Assessment is what you do; evaluation is what you do with it. #saass
