Dumb Assessment to Smart Assessment: Measuring Student Learning

Do you assess your instruction or research classes? Not sure where to begin? Think it’s all a waste of time? You need to attend the amazingly titled “Dumb Assessment to Smart Assessment: Measuring Student Learning” workshop to be held at SALALM this year.

Designed and facilitated by Anne Barnhart, AJ Johnson, Meagan Lacy and Alison Hicks, this workshop will focus on the assessment of library instruction.  We’ll take student learning outcomes focused on Latin American Studies-related topics and then create assessment tools with appropriate evaluation rubrics. Facilitators will guide participants through the creation of measurable assessment tools and practical rubrics. Participants will learn about the value of assessment and collecting and managing assessment data.  Participants will also submit a project to the workshop facilitators and then later in the course of the SALALM conference the workshop facilitators will give the participants feedback on their work.

PLEASE NOTE: Attendance is limited! Please reserve your spot by emailing Anne Barnhart: barnhartuwg@gmail.com

Important Details

  • Date: Saturday 18th May, 9-12.30
  • Location: At the SALALM hotel (Westin Colonnade Hotel, Coral Gables, Florida)
  • Cost: Free!
  • Pre-requisites: None! While this workshop will build on the work done in Trinidad, attendance at the 2012 preconference is not a prerequisite for participation.
