Adapted from a conference paper given at the SUNY Conference on Writing, this webinar will provide a brief overview of the concept of formative assessment as articulated in recent scholarship. This overview will help demonstrate how writing instruction lends itself to the incorporation of formative assessment and may also reveal the ways in which writing instructors already engage in a number of formative assessment practices. The co-presenters will also share tips and experiences using formative assessment in their own classrooms as instructors of college-level writing courses as well as offer options to Baseline users for engaging in formative assessment through the Student Response System.

During this session we will provide step-by-step instructions on how to use the tools and functions available in the Baseline site to review your data. Even if you haven’t collected data yet, it is helpful to know how you will use the data when you are still in the assessment planning stages. Participants will learn how to create and customize graphs; apply filters to view subsets of data; create saved views of data; export data; and set up comparison reports of data across time, between groups or programs, or before and after an intervention.

Though the Student Strengths Inventory & Continuing Student Assessment are powerful instruments on their own, there is a lot more Beacon users can do to maximize their retention and student success efforts. In this webinar, we will discuss best practices for launching these instruments as well as adding custom institutional questions to capture important campus-specific data. We will also provide examples of questions across a variety of topics and populations, including financial aid, mental health, and first-year experience, all of which can be included as custom questions and Baseline triggers for ongoing assessment efforts. Though the webinar will not get into thorough technical detail, we will provide an overview of the purpose and concept of custom questions and triggers.
