#4. Tackling the Application Assessment Items

Even though assessment items are scattered throughout the application, you’ll find it makes more sense to consolidate them rather than tackle them one-at-a-time.

Two patterns should help in your consolidation efforts.

  1. All assessment items fall into 1 of 4 key stakeholder groups: faculty, institution, students, community.

  2. Carnegie requests information on assessment mechanisms, results, and uses. These map onto the Actionable Assessment Cycle in a way that allows them to be place in a chronological order!

Mechanisms → Design Phase

Results → Implementation Phase

Uses → Application Phase
