Assessment Awards

Consider nominating yourself or a colleague for one of our Assessment Awards. We aim to recognize individuals or groups for their innovation, dedication to assessment and support of student success. Please submit nominations by February 25, 2019. Winners will be notified by April 1, 2019, and will be invited to the conference with free registration. Awards will be presented at the conference. 

The three awards being presented this year are Assessment Trailblazer, Assessment to Action and Assessment Champion. See the descriptions for each award below.

 

Assessment Trailblazer: a person, group or program that has utilized inventive, imaginative or creative assessment, research or data collection methods. This award recognizes new ways or methods of thinking about assessment and/or using data to answer important questions. 

  • Criteria: open to any assessment project that has been completed in the past two years or is still in progress. Self-nominations or nominations of others welcome.

Assessment to Action: a person, group or program that has used the results of assessment or research to create or guide change. We are looking for projects that "Close the Loop" on the assessment cycle (the results are used to create change).

  • Criteria: open to any assessment or research project that has been completed in the past two years and has demonstrated evidence of how the project has been a catalyst for change or used to create change. Self-nominations or nominations of others welcome.

Assessment Champion: an individual who champions assessment on their campus from their position. Evidence could include building a culture of assessment, continuously using assessment to inform decision-making or promoting the results of assessment to a wide audience. This could include someone who does not perform assessment in their day-to-day work or could be an assessment professional. 

  • Criteria: nominations only; self-nominations will not be accepted.
