One of the biggest challenges with assessment data is making sense of it and acting on it. How do we know when results are outstanding or concerning? What if the results are below average? What should our target performance be? Benchmarking can help provide answers to these questions and more! In this webinar, we'll explore what benchmarking is, why campuses would use benchmarking, and different types of benchmarking.

Data from benchmarking assessments has the potential provide valuable insights into the college student experience, put results into context, and motivate staff to drive program improvements. However, applying benchmarking data in practice to things like strategic planning, accreditation, and resource allocation can be challenging. What are some practical strategies for making the most of our benchmarking data? In this webinar, professionals from several four-year institutions will highlight examples of how they have used benchmarking data from ACUI/Skyfactor assessments—including student union, activities, and student employees—to improve both their work and the experiences of their students.

Nursing programs purpose themselves to be accountable to communities of interest—to include the nursing profession, consumers, employers, peer institutions of higher education, students and their families. CCNE accreditation validates the success a nursing program achieved related to mission, goals and outcomes. As nursing faculty and administrators, we have to be able to nimbly understand and communicate our program outcomes based on data we collected and analyzed—we need agility to draw conclusions as to what our communities of interest value and what makes our program unique and effective in fulfilling our mission. Join this webinar to learn how to use internal and external data sources to provide evidence of programmatic assessment plan effectiveness. The speaker will address ways to effectively “tell your success stories” to CCNE site visitors and communities of interest through use of multiple data sources. The audience will be given examples of how relevant data sharing, sculpted to fit specific communities of interest, can optimize and leverage program outcomes.

A vital component of CAEP accreditation is the need for reliable and valid data to demonstrate continuous program improvement. Part of the requirements, specifically those in standard four of the CAEP accreditation standards, call on teacher education programs to demonstrate not only satisfaction of program completers and employers, but also the preparedness of completers to positively impact student learning. In this webinar, one campus that recently earned CAEP accreditation will highlight how they use a variety of data sources—including national benchmarking assessments of graduating seniors, alumni, and employers—to support CAEP accreditation efforts, benchmark against peer institutions, and drive continuous improvements to their teacher education program.

Student Response systems are traditionally thought of as in-class tools. And why not? They are great for creating connections, improving student focus, identifying misconceptions, and giving every student a voice. But there are a variety of ways that schools are beginning to use Student Response systems. Dr. Kimi King of the University of North Texas will present some ways that she uses iClicker Cloud (the Student Response System at UNT) in creative, out of the box ways. This presentation is ideal for faculty or administrators interested in adopting a SRS for the institution, and how to maximize that investment.

Intuitively, we know a lot has changed in higher education over the past ten years, both with our students and our practices, in particular with campus housing. And, we can think of many stories that reflect these changes. But, which of these stories show up in our data, and what in the data surprise us? Using data from the last ten years of the ACUHO-I/Benchworks Resident Assessment, we’ll explore ten key trends from the last ten years in housing.
