Collaboration is key
Program-level assessment is a complex activity that requires collaboration, communication, and commitment. Throughout PACE4Equity, teams involve program / department colleagues, graduate and undergraduate students, and other partners to ensure the inclusion of multiple perspectives and voices.
The primary goal of PACE4Equity is to build faculty capacity for participating in and leading equity-minded program-level assessment efforts. To accomplish that goal, PACE4Equity coaches teams to cultivate the knowledge and skills necessary to develop and implement sustainable, meaningful, and equity-minded program-level assessment of student learning.
As a result of active engagement in PACE4Equity, each team should be able to:
- Articulate expectations for student learning that are aligned with their program curriculum;
- Develop, design, and implement inquiry projects to gather evidence of student learning; and
- Write evidence-informed action plans for continuous improvement of their program.
