What’s my Line? Roles, Opportunities, and the Evolving Field of Higher Education Assessment

As the Virginia Assessment Group celebrates 30 years of promoting quality higher education through assessment and institutional effectiveness practices, we find ourselves reflecting on where we have been and where we are going. Assessment practice and scholarship have evolved as students and institutions have changed, and as our own learning has shaped our practices and philosophies. Our questions, assumptions, and methods continue to evolve as we understand more about effective approaches to teaching and learning, and develop new technologies and tools. And as more people from diverse disciplines join the field in new and hybrid roles, we discover new opportunities to approach our work. We as professionals evolve as the field evolves.
