Course Details

Course Overview

This FREE online course provides self-paced curriculum materials and activities that address several learning outcomes. Click here to see the 2024 course syllabus. In short, this course aims to provide participants the opportunity to:

  • Review concepts that contribute to sound, sustainable assessment practice.
  • Explore the development of foundational assessment components including planning, articulating goals and outcomes, and providing feedback.
  • Identify strategies for guiding assessment efforts across multiple functional areas and teams.
  • Discover ways to translate data to a story of student success with a plan for action.

The eight-module course is completely self-paced! You can move through all of the modules to complete the course in full, or pick and choose which individual modules most interest you, and complete only those. While the course is self-paced, the instructors will move through the content one week at a time. Accordingly, students who work ahead or join modules late may not have as much active opportunity to engage with peer students or the instructors.

Instructors hold pre- and post-course hour-long live sessions to engage students and beyond. The session prior to the course start serves to provide course history, overview of content, past outcomes data, and personal perspective about the course as a resource to be leveraged. Check out the Webinars and Videos tab to see upcoming and past recordings of sessions.



Registration for the 2024 course is set to open December 4, 2023 and remain open through March 22, 2024. 

Future course offering timing is determined annually and not necessarily in advance. Stay tuned for future offering details!
