Non-degree awarding units are actively engaged in assessments like surveys, focus groups and individual conversations. Framing those in an assessment plan is a chance to add intentionality to the process. A plan provides guidance, connects assessment to your goals, identifies missing areas, and outlines how the results will be used and more. Join us to see two different approaches to starting a plan and have some in-session work time to draft something to take back to your department. Examples of each approach will be shared.

This presentation was given at the 1st WMU Assessment in Action Day Conference held on March 12, 2010. Included here is also a document that combines several handouts that were shared with the participants of this session.
