Today’s Assessment Team meeting consisted of membership training. Wrenette provided an assessment orientation for both the new and current members. Her presentation covered the process of evaluating plans, closing the loop, and an explanation of the assessment terminology, as
well as the history of assessment at Henderson.
The Team was established to provide leadership and assistance in developing and overseeing an institutional effectiveness program. This program provides continuous self-evaluation and improvement across all academic and nonacademic units at Henderson. The team’s primary
function is to serve in an advisory capacity to academic and nonacademic departments. The team is comprised of representatives from academic and administrative areas. Representatives are nominated by their college dean or vice president. The following areas are
represented: School of Business, Ellis College of Arts and Sciences, Teachers College, Academic Affairs, University and Community Relations, Finance and Administration, President’s Office, a SGA representative, and a graduate student. The director of assessment and the institutional research associate serve as ex-officios.
The meeting was adjourned abruptly around 4:30 p.m. due to tornado warnings.
