Florida Polytechnic University

Vice Provost of Academic Affairs

Florida Polytechnic University

Lightning Talks are short, targeted presentations that provide insight into best practices, challenges, and successes in assessment. Listen in as some of the greatest minds and thought leaders share authentic assessment processes, continuous improvement stories, and innovative approaches toward lifelong learning and student success.

Helping your university colleagues more effectively assess, provide measurable results, and keeping their eyes on continuous improvement is critical to everyone’s success. Learn how Florida Polytechnic Institute used the implementation of a software called AEFIS, along with training and transparent expectations to streamline course evaluations, unit assessments, and even the SACSCOC Compliance Certification.

Key Takeaways

It is our goal to provide the audience with the following intended key takeaways:

1. Explain how AEFIS supports assessment methodologies at Flordia Poly
2. Compare and contrast where Florida Poly’s current assessment methodologies are vs. where they want/need them to be
3. Appreciate the value of workflow in an assessment cycle
