Highlights of September 2014 – Assessment Council

 The Assessment Council approved a new “Fast-Track” mini-grant option.  The new type of mini-grant would fund up to $100.00 for books on assessment for a department or faculty member.  The new fast track mini grant option does not require departmental or dean’s signatures. (Attached is the new Fast-Track application for distribution).

The Assessment Council is seeking proposals for the 5th Annual Regional Community College Assessment Conference scheduled for April 10, 2015.  The theme of this year’s conference is “Moving Forward with Assessment.”  Keynote speaker at this year’s conference will be Dr. Tom Angelo, author of Classroom Assessment Techniques. Please consider submitting a proposal. If you have questions if something will work or not let me know!
