Saturday, February 29, 2020 Sessions Saturday, 9:00-9:50 am The Academic Autopsy: Using the College Success Factor Index to Promote Student Success Essie Childers, Professor of Education, Blinn College Do you want your students to be successful from day one? Of course. Understanding the culture of higher education requires students to make many adjustments and develop a growth mindset. Community college instructors have the first opportunity to set the stage for student success. “Success requires personal responsibility for time management, meeting deadlines, following directions, being prepared for class, self-advocacy, and knowing where and when to ask for help” as stated by Dana Johnson. This session will describe The College Success Factor Index and other assessments to help students recognize these areas and more in which they can be successful. All disciplines, counselors, and advisors are welcome to attend.
Saturday, 10:00-10:50 am Assessment and the Adjunct Professor: A Study of Expectations and Performance Larry W. Hughes, Director of Assessment, Northcentral University, San Diego, California In an online university with over 10,000 active learners, a number of faculty and administrators led a grassroots effort to study and refine assessment in the institution. With the support of executive leaders this group led a series of faculty focus groups and subsequent workgroup meetings. Findings will be shared as they were contributed to, and relate to, adjunct faculty members. The purpose of this proposal is to spark a conversation about assessment expectations of adjunct faculty and opinions around these expectations.
