Accountability is a theme that echoes throughout education. Reporting of outcomes is often derived from assessment data. Educational institutions are required to report measurement of student learning internally and also to outside to entities such as accreditation agencies. Classroom faculty are experts in their field, but may need educational knowledge and training to correctly collect and report assessment data. Experienced faculty may not be familiar with Blackboard's ability to automate much of this task. This presentation will provide attendees with an opportunity to experience assessment concepts and practical information to apply them. Generating data on learning outcomes and the benefits for instructors and students will be discussed. This informative session is appropriate for non-educators working in instructional environments, as well as seasoned educators who would like to get started using assessment features in BlackBoard.
