Join Us in Celebrating AEFIS Team Appreciation Holiday!

What a Year!

This year has been anything, but business as usual.  We all experienced unprecedented change everywhere we turned, including our Partners whose disruptions were beyond anything they could have ever imagined due to COVID-19. The AEFIS Team continued to persevere and pivot effectively to help and support our partners during a trying time for all of us.

AEFIS Team Appreciation Holiday

The AEFIS Team Appreciation Holiday is a tradition we started a couple of years ago, to enable our team to enjoy a much deserved loooooooong weekend on or around the 4th of July holiday. This year, it will be on Monday, July 6, 2020. Accordingly, our team will be “out of office” beginning Friday, July 3, 2020, through Monday, July 6, 2020, and returning to our normal hours on Tuesday, July 7, 2020. 

Help Us Celebrate… With Your Feedback!

You can help our team celebrate by sharing your feedback and comments on how our team may have supported you during the last year, and through the recent disruptions.

Messiah University Does It Right!: Earning Excellence in Assessment Designation

Messiah University’s Excellence in Assessment designation hardly seemed possible when NILOA first announced the program. Our assessment office came into existence ten years ago coinciding with the institution’s preparation for a Middle States’ self-study. When we started, assessment was a “dirty word” for many of our faculty. In their minds, assessment was linked to faculty evaluation. The Excellence in Assessment designation validates the challenging conversations and work of our campus over the past ten years. Messiah moved from a culture of grudging compliance to a culture focused on examining authentic student performance to drive conversations about improvements in student learning.

Reflections on Trust: Cheating in a Pandemic

n August 2020, the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment (NILOA) released survey findings examining assessment-related changes made in the Spring 2020 semester. As part of that report, we examined the intersections of those findings with other COVID-19 related reports on the shift to remote instruction and students’ experience of teaching and learning during that time, offering considerations for practice in the fall and beyond. While August was only a month ago, in pandemic time it feels like at least 8 months have passed since the report was released. Based on conversations with assessment professionals and questions raised about learning in the fall, the report remains relevant all this time later.

The Unexpected Parallels Between Art and Assessment

This past January, I was lucky (or worked hard enough) to receive a research grant from Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, PA. Until this point, most of my university-funded research focused on assessment and revolved around conference presentations. This, however, was a Project Completion Grant, and the project was not about assessment, but part of my professional practice as an artist.
