The Assessment Committee would like to offer you an opportunity to be a part of updating and refining our conceptual framework and operationalizing our dispositions for our assessment purposes (and for NCATE, of course).
During our faculty meeting of March 7, 2008, we began a discussion of our conceptual framework and received feedback from several faculty members.
Here’s how you can participate:
1. Suggest any needed changes/updates to the EHHP conceptual framework or dispositions.
2. Examine the dispositions and provide us some observable descriptions of each (see examples below).
3. Please send your responses to firstname.lastname@example.org (or include a post right here!) no later than October 8.
Feedback from everyone will be collected, organized, and returned to you for examination and further input.
