Greetings from the Assessment Steering Committee!
In recent months, we have received comments regarding when assessment report feedback is received.
It was suggested that a revision to the assessment calendar would provide feedback earlier so that improvements can be made to assessment plans at the beginning of the academic year, rather than mid-year in the spring semester.
For example, rather than submitting annual assessment reports on September 15th, dates could be shifted so that reports are due in April/May. Faculty reviewers, alongside Assessment Steering Committee members, could then review reports over the summer and provide the results of those reviews, along with other valuable feedback, in time to implement any needed changes to student learning outcomes assessment in the coming academic year.
You are invited to participate in a very brief survey to inform the assessment calendar here at UT Knoxville. It is very important for us to have your opinions. The survey will take approximately 2 minutes to complete.
Your participation in this survey is optional. There are no foreseeable risks associated with this project. However, if you feel uncomfortable answering any questions, you may withdraw from the survey at any point.
Thank you very much for your time and support!
The Assessment Steering Committee
