|Looking for information about Assessment Day 2014?|
Winona State University has a long and rich history of assessment and evaluation of student engagement and learning outcomes.
To support the campus-wide efforts to improve curricular and co-curricular programs as well as student services for students’ successful completion of academic endeavors, WSU Faculty Senate established the Assessment Day in Spring 1998. On the Assessment Day, all classes scheduled before 3pm are canceled. Instead, students as well as the faculty and staff engage in various assessment activities. In 2014 over 40 on-line student surveys are administered through Qualtrics, collecting students’ voices on their academic and social experiences at WSU. First-year and senior students are also invited to participate in the ETS Proficiency Profile assessment, which is used to assess some of the General Education student learning goal areas, including reading, writing, critical thinking, and mathematical skills. In addition, the faculty uses this day to plan and implement assessment plans for disciplinary programs as well as for the General Education program.
