Conference Theme

Trailblazing, Traversing, and Transforming: Cultivating Student Learning Through Effective and Innovative Assessment encapsulates the fostering of an environment of belonging through scholarship, advocacy, engagement, and networking. "Trailblazing" signifies breaking new ground in assessment through evidence-based methodologies and exploring uncharted scholarly territories to improve student learning. "Traversing" emphasizes the journey of navigating obstacles and building intentional assessment systems that affirm all learners and ensure that these systems value the wisdom and ways of knowing of individuals and communities. "Transforming" underlines the power of assessment narratives that demonstrate evidence of student learning. This theme invites educators to exchange ideas, share successes, and collectively harness the potential of assessment to enhance student learning.

Call for Pre-Conference Workshops

The Association for the Assessment of Learning in Higher Education (AALHE) invites proposals from the assessment community for a Pre-Conference Workshop ONLY for the 2024 Assessment Conference. Both AALHE members and non-members may submit proposals for this Conference.

A pre-conference workshop is a working session that engages participants in developing skills in specific models and strategies in assessment practice. Pre-conference sessions provide attendees an opportunity to extend their knowledge and skills with additional time for interaction. Be sure to provide a rationale regarding the amount of time needed (3-hour vs 6-hour) for skills-development, substantive practice, and participant interaction. Pre-conference workshops should be grounded in assessment literature and supported by empirically-based evidence.

Proposal authors should select their preference for either the 3-hour (half-day) or 6-hour (full-day) Pre-Conference Workshop.

Deadline for submissions: November 30, 2023
