Annual Conference
Assessment & Progress:
Looking into the Future
Featuring Charlie Blaich and Kathy Wise from the Center of Inquiry and the Higher Education Data Sharing Consortium (HEDS) at Wabash College
  The 2015 conference focuses on:
  • Sharing effective practices that communicate assessment results to various stakeholders, including faculty, campus leaders, parents, policy makers, and students themselves;
  • Highlighting research-based practices for getting usable data into the hands of those who need it; and
  • Promoting the dissemination of assessment results in both the popular and scholarly press.
  With pre-conference workshops, an evening poster session and reception, a full day of traditional concurrent sessions and a final day of only Pecha Kucha presentations, the conference promises to be engaging and dynamic. As always, the tone and tenor of the event will be collegial, as colleagues from within and beyond the Commonwealth of Virginia network, share, and collaborate.


Registration will open soon!  Please check back in the summer.


The 2015 Annual Conference of the Virginia Assessment Group  will be held at the Crowne Plaza, Richmond.  Located in Richmond's downtown district, the hotel is convenient to award-winning restaurants and local area attractions.
