Assessment Isn't An Activity.
It's a State of Mind.
What is culture?
What is a culture of assessment?
A culture of assessment is a set of pervasive actions and behaviors by staff across an organization (e.g., unit, division, etc.) that focuses on the collection, analysis, and use of data to make decisions regarding the accountability and improvement of programs and services. (Henning, 2016, in press).
A culture of evidence refers to a commitment among student affairs professionals to use hard data to show how the programs they offer, the processes they implement, and the services they provide are effective and contribute significantly to an institution’s ability to reach its stated goals and fulfill it’s mission (Culp, 2012, p. 5)
Recognition that assessment is a commitment of accountability to our stakeholders but also a commitment to continuous improvement.
A commitment to student affairs practice that we called positive restlessness and a commitment to continuous innovation.
Institutions with a culture of assessment are self-critical.
There is data-driven decision making.
Assessment needs to be conducted across the institution. (Schuh, 2013)
Characteristics of A Culture of Assessment
Multiple forms of assessment contribute to a culture of assessment.
Learning outcomes need to be identified and measured.
While someone needs to be in charge, all student affairs staff members should pitch in when it comes to assessment.
Results are communicated and acted upon.
Discretionary resources are used to seed assessment projects.
Assessment findings are rewarded with resources.
Formal events are used to celebrate and discuss assessment results. (Shuch, 2013)
