The ACJS Assessment Committee and Peregrine Academics are proud to announce the Second Annual Assessment Workshop to be held at the Kansas City Annual Meeting on Tuesday, March 21 from 1:30-5:30.


If you have not heard the term assessment, you soon will. If you are wondering what assessment is, how it works, or just want to exchange ideas on best practices, this workshop is for you. Topics will include an introduction to assessment, creating

assessment at the course and program levels and the relationship between assessment and accreditation. Time will be available to share best practices and ideas with your fellow attendees. A tentative agenda is listed below. Food will be available thanks to the generosity of our sponsor, Peregrine Academics.


Registration is free, but space is limited in order to provide a chance for meaningful interaction among the workshop participants.
