Exploring the Role that Testing Plays within Student Affairs Outcomes-Based Assessment

Please join Marilee Bresciani, Professor of Postsecondary Education at San Diego State University, as she details how outcomes-based assessment within Student Affairs is developing in its practice among student affairs professionals across the country. In addition, Dr. Bresciani will present Astin's I-E-O theory within the framework of "value-added" assessment discussions. Within this framework, she will explore the emerging role of testing and testing centers.

Following this general overview, there will be a follow-up session for those who want to explore further the theories, issues, and questions raised in Dr. Bresciani's presentation.
