Register to attend the 11th Annual Assessment Conference taking place Online June 7-11, 2021! Attendees can expect live and on-demand sessions as well as five featured keynotes that explore exemplars, encores, and enigmas in assessment. Registered AALHE members will receive a FREE copy of Exemplars of Assessment in Higher Education: Diverse Approaches to Addressing Accreditation Standards, edited by Dr. Jane Marie Souza and Dr. Tara Rose; all royalties have been donated by the editors to AALHE.

Exemplars: These theory-into-practice presentations will support the assessment community. These sessions include conversations on best practices and valuable examples for practitioners, as well as conversations from the book edited by Dr. Jane Marie Souza and Dr. Tara Rose, Exemplars in Assessment.

Encores: These timely, meaningful, or otherwise notable presentations and conversations merit revisiting. These sessions include expansions of previous work; conversations worth having again with a broader audience; and/or replicated assessment results, adjusted processes, or revisited studies.

Enigmas: These presentations consider questions and theoretical explorations of assessment’s effect on institutions, learners, and the world. These sessions include research on new innovations, not-as-of-yet-best practices, and/or proposed solutions to problems assessment practitioners face in the new normal.
