Assessment Team Shirts
Carol H. and Norma will work on a shirt design for the October 25 SAEM event.
Conferences Proposals with cost sharing
Part of developing capacity as assessment coaches is to attend assessment conferences hosted by professional organizations such as NASPA or ACPA, and national organizations with assessment tracks. Develop a proposal to attend one: We would like to see cost sharing with your area but should be able to support conference travel for several people.
Darby Roberts agenda
At all her sessions, we would like her to address meaningful assessment, overcoming fear and resistance, and the value of assessment. At the meeting with the Assessment Team, we would also like her to address (1) how to coach; (2) what have been her failures and challenges in assessment? And (3) What are her recommendations for building assessment capacity across SAEM?
- 1.5–2 hours with the Leadership Team
- 1.5–2 hours with SAEM general audience
- 1.5–2 hours with the Assessment Team
- Additional time will be available for Assessment Team members to meet one-on-one with Darby.
Thanks to Carol H., who volunteered to be our note-taker for the upcoming year, starting next meeting.
Assessment Day: Need planning volunteers
We would like to hold an end-of-the-year assessment event. Planning for this will be Ben, Deb, Michael J., and Melody.
