Old Business:
The team continued the previous meetings topic regarding changing the assessment cycle for academic and/or administrative units. The question of whether it would be beneficial for assessment units to change from a cycle where observations are made and changes proposed in June of each year or changing to a cycle where observations would be made at the end of November and any proposed changes would be ready to incorporate into a budget proposal if necessary was discussed. Each team member requested feedback from the units they represent regarding preferences on this topic. The team determined that each cycle has its advantages/disadvantages to different assessment units and proposed drafting a proposal to the Provost where assessment units would be able to select the assessment cycle that best suits their department’s needs while each unit still maintains an annual assessment cycle.

Dr. Schroeder appointed the following assessment team members to a sub-committee to draft a proposal to the Provost by our meeting on April 29, 2013:

Dr. Brett Serviss, Chair
Pam Ligon
Lynette Jones
Dr. Margaret Hoskins
Wrenette Tedder

Dr. Schroeder announced that Claire Howard, a freshman music major has agreed to be the undergraduate student representative to the Assessment Team.

There being no further business the meeting was adjourned at 4:45 pm.

Respectfully submitted,
Lecia Franklin
