The Office of Assessment Services sponsors several campus-wide events each year. Each event is designed to foster proactive and engaged assessment that meets the needs of the NIU community.
In the fall of each year we hold the FAll ASSESSMENT SPEAKER SERIES, where we invite a nationally recognized assessment expert to share his or her expertise with the NIU campus community through a series half-day or full-day workshops. The speaker and topic(s) of interest are recommended by the University Assessment Panel, the Campus Assessment Network, and the Office of Assessment Services.
In the spring of each year, we celebrate, share, and recognize best practices in program assessment through out the NIU campus community by holding the ASSESSMENT EXPO. The University Assessment Panel, along with the Office of Assessment Services and the Campus Assessment Network, recommends an annual theme and nominates approximately ten academic degree programs and student support service units to share their assessment best practices. This is a great opportunity to network, see program assessment successes, and keep abreast of current trends and issues.
Current and past ASSESSMENT EXPO resources can be found here.
