The Coordinator of Assessment and Strategic Planning is tasked with assisting Student Affairs in building a culture of evidence-informed planning to foster student learning and success. To effectively support assessment efforts across Student Affairs, the model we employ centers on capacity building, resource development, and consulting at the departmental and program levels.

Services include:

Project Consultation

Educational Seminars and Presentations

Support for Program Review & Strategic Planning

 

Consultation & Data Analysis

A department or program level consult provides a time to pose questions, solicit feedback, or work through challenges. You can request a consult at any point in the assessment process.  We offer support in conceptualizing learning or program outcomes, identifying methods to measure outcomes, designing surveys and other measures,  analyzing data, and connecting assessment with actionable results. To schedule a consultation contact Belinda Locke at 919-962-8312.

Instrument Development

We offer on-site support for developing  instruments to measure learning or program outcomes.  In addition, Student Affairs is licensed to use Baseline in Campus Labs to develop and implement assessment instruments including surveys and rubrics. Staff can log in with their ONYEN and ONYEN password at http://unc.campuslabs.com/.  Once you log in, open the Baseline component and follow the Request a Project link to set up a project and access assessment or technical support.

Educational Seminars and Presentations

The Assessment Council hosts an Assessment Learning Community which meets on the 2nd Tuesday of the month from 11:00 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. The seminars include discussions paired with hands-on experience designing and implementing an assessment project. Cohort members are eligible to earn an Professional Development Certificate in Student Affairs Assessment. To join the ALC send an email expressing your interest to blocke@email.unc.edu.

We also tailor capacity building presentations to meet any department's skill level or needs. To request a customized educational presentation or workshop, contact a member of the Student Affairs Assessment Council or call Belinda Locke at 919-962-8312.

Program Review & Strategic Planning

Student Affairs departments should complete a comprehensive program review every 5 years. The purpose of review is to systematically evaluate the effectiveness of programs and services in order to enhance practice and inform the planning process. Program review is organized by the procedures and standards defined by the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education. Departments who undergo external accreditation by a national organization may use those processes in lieu of Program Review.
