Assessment

There are several steps to this process. For a good overview see 
Bresciani, Gardner, & Hicmott's (2009) chapter: Criteria for 
Evaluating Effective Outcomes-Based Assessment Practice. One of most 
important steps in this process is for your faculty group to define 
good assessment.  In doing so, you can clearly articulate expectations 
for assessment to your institution's programs. Many institutions have 
communicated such expectations through rubrics or checklists.

Here is link to a pdf package that we provide assessment coordinators 
at my institution, James Madison University, which includes general 
directions for writing the assessment report, the rubric used to 
evaluate the assessment reports, and a couple versions of a 
hypothetical exemplar assessment report:

There are many other examples too. Last year some graduate students 
and I - with help from Ephraim Schechter and the Assessment Listserv - 
identified over 50 of these "meta-assessment" rubrics or checklists. 
That list is below:

Theresa in the previous e-mail made many good points. The faculty we involved in rating assessment reports are now great resources for their respective departments and programs.
