  • My group and I decided to take a different approach to this assessment project. We decided that we were going to assess the assessment tool, add a qualitative survey, find more places for them to administer the survey to increase student feedback, find literature on ways to enhance the academic advising process as a whole, and get the student’s feedback on the academic advising process.
  • The associate director, Steven Barleen, is the person responsible for developing the instrument and analyzing the results. Various types of question: open ended, closed ended, and matrix question. There are three separate sections of the survey: usage, needs, and satisfaction. Read 2 question of each. The survey is administered in a number of places: during advising session, online, during classes offered by the AAC, and during workshops, seminars, and programs provided by the AAC; which Wendy will go into further detail a little later.
  • Pass around the assessment summary report. Read: We went into this project fearful of what was to come and came out confident in our skills withassessment and prepared to do assessment in our future endeavors.
