Consortium on Useful Assessment in Language and Humanities Education (CUALHE), Annual Meeting and Conference 2015: Outcomes Assessment in Support of Foreign Language Education (new window)

The Consortium is an inter-institutional collaborative effort that aims to share and to enhance assessment practices developed by college language and humanities programs and to develop a cadre of scholars who can serve as assessment experts/facilitators. We hope 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.
