Assessment forums are an opportunity for faculty to share their assessment work and exchange ideas on campus assessment policy and practice.
The 2014 Assessment Forums will showcase the work of faculty in the Assessment Grant Program. Two forums will be held, the first on Wednesday, February 26 from 1 to 2:30 and the second on Wednesday, March 19 from 1 to 2:30. Both will be held in the Orinda Room (Soda Center).

To watch the 2013 forum, Assessment in the Arts, login below. The Assessment in the Arts Forum included Ed Tywoniak (Communication), Cathy Davalos (Dance), Peter Freund (Media Art), and Frank Murry (Theater) and was organized around the following questions:
- What is the role of the creative process in assessment?
- Does the process of working on an artistic project, choreographing a dance, creating a sculpture, or producing a video count in the assessment process?
- If so, how do we capture this evidence?
