2018 Conference Proceedings

All Conference presentations are eligible for inclusion in the conferences proceedings. The Proceedings of the AALHE Conference serve several important functions:

• They allow Conference participants, who are unable to attend your session, to have materials on the topic,
• They are a rich resource for all who are interested in assessment in higher education,
• They provide best practices shared by member institutions at the AALHE Conference,
• They support, document, and affirm the contributions of the presenters.
• They may be selected for inclusion in a 5-year follow-up volume planned for 2019.

Guidelines for Preparing a Paper

Papers for the 2018 Conference are due July 9, 2018. These will be shared digitally with the AALHE membership by October 1, 2018. This is will be the last year of opportunity to appear in The Best of AALHE Proceedings, the First 5 Years.
