From Results to Action: The What, When, and How of Learning Interventions
April 4 | 1PM CT | 45 Minutes
We’ve collected the outcomes and analyzed the data. We’ve summarized the results and set our comparative benchmarks. We also know that ‘closing the loop’ is the sine qua non of assurance of learning for accreditation — yet, it is one of the most challenging aspects of the accreditation process.
So, how do we best accomplish this? How do we ensure that we are drawing justifiable, evidence-based conclusions? What kinds of interventions are available and practical to implement? How do we overcome the obstacles that often confront us when we strive to use learning assessment to enhance educational quality?
Join Dr. Erich Dierdorff as he discusses answers to these key questions. From the webinar you will learn about various approaches to interpret your program’s results, link these findings to a variety of available interventions, and address common obstacles that impede program improvement.Learn More & Register
From Results to Reports: Compliance and Beyond
February 22, 2017
So much effort is spent designing and implementing learning assessment processes that we often feel a great sense of relief when it finally comes time to analyze the outcomes we’ve collected. Unfortunately, this relief frequently fades and gives way to the realization that the job is far from over.
It is at this crucial point where we must address several key questions. How do we summarize these data? How do we present the results in the context of our learning goals? What precisely should we report in our accreditation documentation?
In this webinar, Dr. Erich Dierdorff discusses answers to these key questions. From the webinar you will learn about the common components of assessment documentation, ways to improve your analysis and reports, and how you can go beyond simple compliance to create more robust and meaningful learning assessment.Watch Recording
