The Assessment Interest Group hosted its first spring workshop on April 24 at the OCLC Conference Center in Dublin. Statewide interest in assessment is clearly strong: with 45 attendees, the workshop was sold out. The day-long workshop included plenary speaker Lynn Silipigni Connaway, roundtables on assessment plans at four different universities, breakout sessions on outcomes-based assessment and structured project management, and an opportunity to discuss the challenges of assessment. A wide variety of interests and schools were represented at the workshop. The day was a great start to our interest group’s foray into spring workshops and we look forward to featuring different areas of assessment at future workshops.
