Dr. Robin Nickel, academic assessment director, will give a presentation on prior learning assessment at the upcoming “Innovations” conference in New York City, Feb. 24.
Nickel will present the college's process for student intake, prior learning assessment design and managing the assessment inventory. New this year is a report on reaction to the process from students completing the assessments. In calendar year 2018, 57 unduplicated students attempted 125 prior learning courses. As of today the pass rate hovers around 72 percent.
The presentation will be available in early March on Prezi. Sabrina Freter, instructor in the Veterinary Technician program, provides ongoing clarity and input into the presentation by adding tips for student communication, curriculum design considerations and time management issues when assessing multiple students and sections.
