The Impact of Indirect Measures on Assessment

Presented by

Athens State University and Longwood University

About this talk

A holistic assessment strategy requires direct measurement of student progress, indirect measures of the learning experience, and a fresh perspective on what you’re tracking — and why. From defining what to measure, establishing strong measurement practices, and applying what you’ve learned to your strategic plan, this panel discussion will show you insights from other higher education leaders who have successfully broadened their approach. Our panelists answer questions such as: - Where do you make use of indirect measures? - How do accreditors like SACSCOC respond to indirect measures vs. direct measures? - What types of indirect measures are most valuable to your institution? They also share best practices including how to creatively apply indirect measures to non-academic outcomes. Presenters: - Jeffrey Guenther, Assistant Provost for Planning, Budgeting & Assessment, Athens State University - Linda Townsend, Director of Assessment, Longwood University This presentation is a recording from the Watermark Engage 2022 Conference.
