Assessment Toolbox:Creating a Culture of Evidence

We know, or can quickly learn, how to write measurable outcomes, design valid measures, and collect, analyze, and report data to make improvements in our programs. Getting administrators and faculty, in particular, to participate in assessment, value assessment, and use assessment data to improve their programs is a more difficult challenge.
