6th Annual ACJS Assessment Workshop

sponsored by

The ACJS Assessment Committee has developed another quality training you don't want to miss! The 6th Annual ACJS Assessment Workshop will be held in conjunction with the ACJS 57th Annual Meeting. The training will take place on Tuesday, March 24, from 1:30pm-5:30pm at the Marriott Rivercenter hotel in San Antonio, Texas.

There will be two engaging tracks; a Current Issues in Academic Assessment track and a Nuts and Bolts training track with presentations covering some of the basics of starting and running an assessment program.

In addition, for the first time, the Assessment Committee will be providing interactive follow-up workshops throughout the annual meeting, where participants can meet again with our presenters. These sessions are designed to enable participants to bring assessment plans they are working on and get hands-on assistance or provide advice to fellow participants. No additional registration is required for these interactive workshops.

Food will be provided during the workshop thanks to the generosity of our sponsor, Peregrine Academics, including a wine and recap social.

The workshop registration fee is: FREE!  However, you must RSVP on or before March 15, 2020.  Space is limited, so please don't wait until the last minute to register. Secure your seat today!

NOTE: Please indicate during the registration process which track you plan on attending. This is not wedded in stone (you can jump between tracks if you wish), but it will give the committee an idea of how many people to plan for in each of the rooms.
