Assessment Week

May 23-May 27, 2022

Please join us for Assessment Week (the week of May 23), a week of events designed to highlight and share our QUEST for success (Ensuring Quality of our work, Understanding the faculty, staff, students, and community we serve, striving for Equity in our work, Sharing the results of our assessments, and fostering Transparency).

The Office of Institutional Effectiveness, Academic Affairs, and the Kingsborough Center for eLearning (KCeL) have teamed up to put together a series of four events, each focusing on a different type of assessment happening in the College. Over the course of the week you will have the opportunity to hear from faculty and staff about how they use assessment to design effective courses that best foster student learning; measure how well our students are doing; and better understand the experiences of students, faculty, and staff.

QUEST Forum, 12-1:30pm

This event is centered around showing how faculty and staff across the College engage in their QUEST. We will hear about four different projects conducted by faculty and staff and how they identify, collect, and use data to help them (and others) make decisions.  

Presenters: Prof. Richard Fruscione (Dept. Of Allied Health), Prof. Kieren Howard (Dept of Physical Sciences) & Samantha Sierra (Learning Academies), Prof. Dorina Tila (Dept. Of Business), Carey Manifold (CUNY ASAP) & Helen Nasser (Student Life)

A recording of the session is available here (Password: W6B!vV6x)

KCeL Course Creation Showcase, 2pm-3pm

A number of KCC faculty have recently partnered with KCeL to develop their courses using evidence-based best practices in instructional design and assessment. Please join KCeL’s instructional designer Susan Lambert and Profs. Dawn Levy (Dept. of Business), Marie McGovern (Dept. of Biological Sciences) and Kristin Polizzotto (Dept. of Biological Sciences) as they share their course shell development process, innovative course content, and assessment plans.

Student Success Summit, 1-2:30pm

Student Success is one of the five major themes of KCC’s Strategic Plan and one of the four pillars of the Academic Plan (ENGAGING LEARNERS WHERE THEY ARE ).  This event highlights the college’s efforts to improve enrollment, retention, credit accumulation, and graduation rates and to close equity gaps in these areas.  This year, the Student Success Summit will focus on to enhance early connections students make to the college and their first semester success
