The Consortium on Useful Assessment in Language and Humanities Education (CUALHE) is an inter-institutional collaborative effort that aims to share and to enhance useful assessment practices developed by college language and humanities programs and to develop a cadre of scholars who can serve as assessment experts/facilitators. The aim of the Consortium to foster a culture of reflective teaching in higher education and to support research into student learning, thereby making useful assessment a regular part of the academic modus operandi.

The goals of the annual meeting and conference are: (a) to provide a forum for those working on outcomes assessment (and related endeavors) to present and exchange ideas, and (b) to enable strategic planning of the Consortium organization and activities.

This year's conference spans two days and consists of presentations and discussions on three assessment-related strands: (1) assessment of experiential learning outcomes; (2) text-based assessment in language studies programs; and (3) useful assessment of language and humanities education. The conference begins with an opening luncheon on Saturday, October 28th, followed by presentations and discussion. The first day concludes with a late-afternoon keynote and reception. Presentations and discussions continue on Sunday, October 29th. Discussions will be facilitated by an invited scholar with expertise in the respective strand. The conference ends with lunch on Sunday.
