  • Assessment

    "Assessment is a process in which rich, usable, credible feedback from an act — of teaching or curriculum — comes to be reflected upon by an academic community and then is acted on by that community — a department or college — within its commitment to get smarter and better at what it does." - T.J. Marchese
