Over the last decade, the assessment of student learning and overall institutional effectiveness has become an ever-growing priority (and mandate). Well-tailored assessment and planning practices ensure higher education institutions are achieving their missions and help improve student learning and the institution as a whole. The value reaped from this process has its costs. The call for accountability through assessment, comes at a time at which tuition is on the rise and graduates face uncertain returns on that investment. At the same time, institutions are confronted with the challenges of decreased funding and operating budgets and call for greater access, affordability and transparency. How can a college or university know when it has invested the "right" amount of resources in assessment? Good practice in assessment involves analyzing the process itself. There are no simple rules for determining how much an institution should spend on this practice. However, a closer look at the costs and benefits of assessment will help institutions find a workable balance that sees them investing in a process that ensures they are living up to their missions and better serving their students.

An assessment story should read like a good mystery book. Meaning it has to have a lead character (the one who wants to know), accompanied by a cast of characters (students, staff, faculty, departments, stakeholders, etc.). It must have a good plot (what is going on here and why), and lastly it has to have an ending (what did we learn and what do we need to do) that completes the story. This methodology can be used to demystify assessment. Putting these stories together in chapters or as an anthology allows one to see the whole picture (book). Guest Presenters: Lisa Erwin, Vice Chancellor for Student Life, University of Minnesota-Duluth Mary Tosch, Student Life Manager, Waubonsee Community College Mary Ward, Special Asst. to the Pres. for Affirmative Action, Bemidji State University
