Assessment Team and Liaisons

A best practice in student affairs is to have a division-level assessment team or committee focused on leveraging the knowledge, experience, and resources of multiple departments to support a culture of evidence and continuous improvement. Assessment liaisons from each department comprise the Assessment Team.

The role of the Assessment Team is to:

  • coordinate a division strategy that considers departments’ needs to gather data with survey fatigue

  • connect what is occurring across departments that contributes to divisional and institutional goals

  • support in the execution, analysis, and sharing of findings with division/institution-wide projects

  • create a community of learners and assessment training opportunities to support staff

  • assist in the development and execution of a program review

In addition to serving on the Assessment Team, an Assessment Liaison is expected to:

  • share, promote, and model the philosophy of assessment and evaluation to create and sustain a culture of evidence and continuous improvement

  • communicate areas of opportunity to build staff competence and confidence in assessment and evaluation staff to the Assessment Team to inform resources and training

  • encourage wide-participation in opportunities to develop knowledge and skills

  • approach work through the lens of data governance and identify how best to onboard or train staff

  • maintain a catalogue of departmental data assets, access, and classifications

  • assist in developing a departmental assessment plan by cataloguing and monitoring the assessment projects and how they align with core functions, strategies, and metrics

  • track metrics through division dashboards and the Anthology (formerly Campus Labs) Planning Module

  • share resources, ideas, and best practices with Assessment Team to promote divisional development

  • work with supervisor to incorporate assessment responsibilities into performance evaluations
