Common Time on Sep. 16 offers help with assessment activities

Common Time on Monday, Sep. 16, is a workshop to support faculty and staff members who are involved with planning, deploying, and analyzing results from program and departmental assessment activities.

Common Time starts at 3 p.m., in the Conference Center on Clifton Campus, and is open to all employees.

The opening portion of the workshop will be used to present information to all and will be available via streaming media at

However, anyone seeking help or guidance for assessment-related tasks is welcome to stop by the Conference Center anytime between 3 and 4:30 for individual assistance.

Provost Robbin Hoopes and assessment leaders Dean Geoffrey Woolf and Associate Dean Denise Rohr will provide help with assessment tasks such as:

  • Honing your program/department learning outcomes 
  • Formulating your assessment research question
  • Collecting data
  • Analyzing results and taking action

"Providing results of program assessment is essential to this year’s Annual Academic Self-Study," Provost Hoopes said. "The Common Time will be a College-wide work session on assessment."

"Departments and programs also could use this time to work on assessment in their divisions," Provost Hoopes said. "If questions come up, we will be available in the Conference Center to assist as needed."
