LEAP Texas was disappointed with the difficult, but necessary, decision to cancel the in-person 7th Annual LEAP Texas Conference in response to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis. However, we are happy to announce the launch of the 7th Annual LEAP Texas Conference Webinar Series! This series will feature a number of the Concurrent Session presentations that were scheduled for the Conference. The first part of this series will run from April 21 through May 8, 2020, with additional presentations coming over the summer.

More Than a Thesis or Dissertation: Promoting Effective Assessment of Graduate Programs
Webinar Track:Â Assessment of Student Learning at the Course, Program, and Institutional Level
Jeff Roberts â€“ Sam Houston State University
Assessment of graduate programs often rely heavily upon evaluations of student comprehensive exams or the completion of a thesis, dissertation, or capstone projects. While these artifacts can be useful, they alone are not sufficient to fully understand, and to improve, student learning throughout a program. This session will examine how graduate programs can assess student learning across a graduate curriculum, and how programs can better use artifacts like comprehensive exams, capstone projects, theses, and dissertations to effectively evaluate student learning for graduate program improvement.
