Assessment Works:

Listener Submission Guidelines

In our new podcast through the Association for the Assessment of Learning in Higher Education (AALHE), we'll highlight work in the field, and we want to hear from you!

How to Submit

Send us audio recordings of anecdotes or questions to, or leave a message at (302)8-ASSESS.

What to Submit

We're hoping to include the following kinds of success stories on the podcast:

  • Assessment success stories, specifically changes that were made in programming following assessment that has caught on and led to improvement
  • New techniques you tried out that you think others might want to use
  • Resources you've found to be helpful

Tips for Submissions

  • Include your name, location, and institution at the beginning of your audio.  Your first name is required; the rest is optional.
  • It's a good idea to have an idea of what you're going to say before you begin recording. You don't need to script it out, but practicing a couple of times will make you sound more polished.
  • Speak clearly and at a normal speed; it's easy to rush when you're a bit nervous.
  • If you have links to go along with your audio (for example, if you reference an online resource), please send that to us in your e-mail. If you submit via voicemail, just send us a separate e-mail and tell us which audio submission your links should be paired with. Links will go in the show notes.

Example Submission

Hi, this is Erin from North Adams, Massachusetts. This week I led a curriculum mapping workshop, and I found the NILOA Curriculum Mapping toolkit was really helpful in helping me prepare. It had an overview that helped plan my outline, and an example of how to use the Design Thinking process to get more collaborative results.
