Webinar: Assessment Basics #1: Developing Quality Outcomes & Objectives

February 20, 2020 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Whether you’re looking for professional development for your team, a refresher course, another perspective, or all of the above, Watermark invites you to join the Watermark Engage “Assessment Basics Webinar Series” starting on February 20 and leading up to the annual conference.

The first webinar in the series focuses on writing outcomes and objectives for student learning and operational effectiveness. This can be a challenging process, and it’s easy to feel lost as you work to determine the focus of the outcomes, find the right outcome language, and make them measurable. This webinar will help you master the process for identifying and drafting learning outcomes that serve as the foundation for the assessment of student learning.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Explain the “difference” between outcomes and objectives
  • Describe the process for soliciting themes for outcome development
  • Create outcomes aligned to existing goals/themes
  • Create outcomes with clear wording, focused on measurable actions/consequences
