Assessment Committee Meeting Minutes – June 25, 2013

  • IWAC accomplishments during the first appointment cycle (December 1, 2011 thru June 30, 2013)
    It seemed reasonable to convene the Committee at this point in time since it marked the end of the first appointment cycle for the IWAC. While the Committee will continue it will change focus in the next cycle and IWAC co-chairs wanted to thank Committee for support in helping to build the Assessment website and Assessment Library (both major accomplishments for the Committee). Also shared future directions for the Committee...some of which are the result of conversations in Committee over the past year.
