Closing the Loop

This is one of those typical assessment terms or phrases that is a continuous thorn in our sides. Sometimes, as ‘assessment people’ we are in a constant circle of asking for data or information and getting the run-around. There have to be new/fresh ways to close the loop on assessment. How can we go about getting a better handle on who is responsible for specific items, and when they should be done? We have a preliminary ‘document manifest’ system in place, but we are really wondering how other schools manage this. We’ve tried the wiki system, but could not muster up faculty participation. How is everyone else handling this?

    This is definitely a challenge! One answer is to educate the faculty on the importance of assessment and how it can be beneficial for them. The question then becomes how should this be done?
