Your level of participation is completely up to you, as there are no formal, time-bound assignments. The Applying and Leading Assessment in Student Affairs free online course is divided into eight modules formatted to address seven learning outcomes and an opportunity to connect concepts from across the course. The course is completely self-paced! You can move through all of the modules to complete the course in full, or pick and choose which individual modules most interest you, and complete only those. While the course is self-paced, the instructors will move through the content one week at a time. Accordingly, students who work ahead or join modules late may not have as much active opportunity to engage with peer students or the instructors.
The eight modules of this course include:
- Assessment Foundations for Effective Practice
- Assessment Planning
- Coaching and Consulting
- Aligning Assessment with Institutional Priorities
- Critical Approaches and Mindsets
- Using Data to Inform Decisions
- Culture of Assessment
- Connecting Concepts to Advance Student Affairs Assessment
Students who wish to be recognized for completing activities and other projects can receive a Statement of Accomplishment based on a minimum level of competencies achieved.
