AALHE 2023 Conference Call for Proposals

The Call for Proposals opens soon.

The Association for the Assessment of Learning in Higher Education (AALHE) invites proposals from the assessment community for the 2023 Assessment Conference. Both AALHE members and non-members may submit proposals for the AALHE 2023 Conference.

Conference Theme

More information on the Conference theme will follow in fall 2023.

Session Levels

The conference curriculum will feature four levels of content to support attendees with identifying conference content that meets their needs. Proposal authors are invited to select the level(s) they believe best represents their content. 

  • Introductory - Introductory sessions are designed to serve attendees with a novice understanding of assessment. Sessions will include definitions and context that may not be necessary for intermediate or advanced sessions. While the subject matter may be quite complex, the session assumes a beginner-level understanding of assessment and assessment practices. These sessions are appropriate for entry-level assessment professionals, faculty who may be new to the assessment conversation at their institution, and graduate students.

  • Intermediate - Intermediate sessions are designed to serve attendees with an established understanding of assessment. Session presenters assume an active assessment vocabulary and some experience with assessment activities. The subject matter will naturally be more complex than introductory sessions. These sessions are appropriate for mid-level assessment professionals, faculty assessment liaisons with departmental or institutional assessment experience, or advanced graduate students with assessment experience.

  • Advanced - Advanced sessions are designed to serve attendees with a substantial understanding of assessment. Session presenters assume that session attendees are well-versed in assessment language and assessment practice. The subject matter for these sessions will be high-level, global concepts and advanced techniques and processes. These sessions are appropriate for assessment professionals, researchers interested in assessment subject matter, and advanced graduate students with assessment experience and research interest in assessment.

  • All Levels - Sessions in this category are designed to serve attendees across a range of experiences and expertise. Session presenters make no assumptions about the audience save an interest in assessment. The subject matter can be assessment tangential or assessment specific. Assessment language or appropriate vocabulary may be introduced, but the subject matter will quickly dive deeper than introductory sessions.  These sessions are designed to include cross-expertise community and provide opportunity for collaborative thinking and interaction across levels of experience.
