James Madison University
Diamond Virtual Sponsorship
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.

Gold Virtual Sponsorship
The National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and its affiliated surveys, FSSE and BCSSE, help institutions assess quality in undergraduate education and strengthen the learning environment. Topical modules on inclusivity and cultural diversity, advising, and students experiences with writing, and updated reports and online tools provide evidence of educational effectiveness. NSSE is administered annually to first-year and senior students at participating institutions. Results provide valid, reliable information on the extent to which students engage in proven educational practices that correspond to desirable learning outcomes. More than 1,600 bachelors-granting institutions have participated in this effort to assess and improve undergraduate education. Institutions receive diagnostic information about teaching and learning, with customizable comparison groups, and resources to assist in interpreting and using results. Visit our virtual booth to learn more about the NSSE, FSSE and BCSSE and the new developments as the project enters its 3rd decade in assessment and improvement in higher education.
