Involving Undergraduates in Assessment

To support and sustain assessment, the Center for Research on Teaching Excellence at UC Merced offers the Students Assessing Teaching and Learning (SATAL) program, in which trained undergraduates gather indirect evidence of student learning on behalf of faculty to improve student learning and institutional services. SATAL trains undergraduates in research design, data gathering, and effective reporting. In this interactive session, we will explore the SATAL program structure, benefits, and evidence of impact on instructional practices and curriculum at course and program levels. We look forward to a conversation about the assessment findings and how to replicate the program elsewhere.

Engaging Students As Assessment Scholars: A Partnership Between Academic Affairs and Student Development

Engaging students as educational partners often remains a missing piece in assessment. The Student Assessment Scholars (SAS) Program is a collaboration between academic and student affairs, which trains and engages students in the work of assessment while equipping them to be future academics and student affairs professionals.
