ANNY Assessment Conference


April 27-29, 2018

Charlie Blaich and Kathy Wise presented “In the Long Run: Gathering Evidence from Alumni to Improve Your Institution’s Educational Impact” at the Annual Conference of the Assessment Network of New York.


The broader student learning outcomes that we seek for students are only realized in the years after they complete their degrees. In this session, we review the results of a national survey project that examined alumni perceptions about the relationship between the educational practices and conditions they had as undergraduates and their post-college intellectual skills. We also consider the quality and utility of this kind of post-graduate survey evidence for institutional assessment.
