The Assessment Institute, hosted by IUPUI and usually held in Indianapolis, Indiana, is the oldest and largest higher education event in the United States focused on assessment and improvement. It is designed to provide opportunities for:
- individuals and campus teams new to higher education assessment and improvement to acquire fundamental knowledge about the field;
- individuals who have worked as leaders in assessment and improvement to share and extend their knowledge and skills; and
- those interested in assessment and improvement at any level or in any collegiate context to establish networks that serve as sources of support and expertise beyond the dates of the Institute.
