Assessment Tools

Campus Labs Baseline provides the means to collect assessment data through innovative and emerging technologies.

Mobile

For mobile data collection, Campus Labs utilizes the Apple iPod touch and iPhone platforms, and is one of the few organizations within higher education that has an approved application for Apple technology.

Online

The online data collection tools provide all the basic survey functionality such as open- and closed-ended questions, drop-down menus, and question matrixes. More advanced features in the Campus Labs online application include the ability to:

  • Program complex skip patterns and create a customized survey experience for each respondent based on how they answer an assessment question.
  • Facilitate follow-up assessments to groups of respondents or panels that meet certain criteria or have specific characteristics
  • Generate dynamic content or resource pages for each respondent based on “trigger” questions in the assessment

Rubrics

The Baseline rubrics tool allows campuses to create rubrics from scratch or to utilize rubrics from a library of templates. Rubrics are available in a print-friendly format, or rubrics can be administered via a web link. Whether collected via mobile devices, online surveys, or rubrics, all assessment data is available in real-time via the Baseline reporting site.

Assessing students’ satisfaction with student affairs programs is no longer sufficient as we are expected to assess student learning wherever it occurs. Targeting those who struggle with the transition to assessing learning, we describe strategies for assessing learning and share the Office of Disability Services’ journey from no assessment, to assessing satisfaction with a survey, to assessing student learning with rubrics that are linked to Division-wide learning outcomes. We will discuss the benefits of rubrics and will share them with participants.

Guest Presenter:

Jeremy Penn, Ph.D., is the Director of Student Affairs Assessment at North Dakota State University. Prior to coming to NDSU, he was the Director of Assessment and Testing at Oklahoma State University for four years and was an assessment coordinator for two years at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

Learn about two community colleges—Cascadia Community College and IECC—that have developed not only an institution-wide assessment process, but also a culture to support it. Presenters will describe how they gained momentum for their respective assessment initiatives, their process for defining and refining their outcomes and plans, and the mechanisms they have in place to continue to scaffold these initiatives with concrete support and professional development. Facilitators will also offer some concluding suggestions for developing a culture of assessment based on other emerging trends in the field.

She has developed solutions to assist in meeting accountability standards, such as a 360-degree Program Review, electronic based learning outcomes and accreditation processes, and proven methods that provide a continuous flow of planning, assessment, feedback, reflection, and improvement.

Prior to working in the Washington state system, Susi served as Assistant Registrar at McMurry University in Texas. She holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration, and a Master’s in Education from the University of Washington Bothell with an emphasis in assessment.
