Sponsoring Two Institute-Wide Functions and the Institute Podcast
Winner of over a dozen national assessment awards and recognitions, James Madison University (JMU) believes that excellent assessment practice is built over time. Importantly, success is dependent upon faculty members and student affairs professionals who have the knowledge, skills, and time to apply assessment critically to their practices. JMU has long provided a continuum of assessment resources to those on campus, from articles to workshops to a PhD program in Assessment and Measurement. In recent years, we have made more of these resources available to the entire assessment community.
