Evaluation Fundamentals: Who, When, How…and Why? | Commons Seminar
facilitated by Evergreen faculty members Cali Ellis & Nancy Koppelman’
Many students are attracted to Evergreen because of the college’s practice of assessment by means of narrative evaluations. This talk/discussion will focus on some of the nuts-and-bolts—the who, when, and how—of the evaluations that faculty are required to write (student, colleague, and self). Then attention will turn to this question: Why, instead of generating letter grades, GPAs, and simple data sets, does Evergreen administer a time-consuming, cumbersome, college-wide culture of narrative evaluation? Before we meet, Cali and Nancy will provide sample evaluations and invite participants to submit questions ahead of time to be addressed in the session. Topics may include implicit bias, pronouns, and best practices.
*Once you register, you will receive an email from zoom with information to connect to the session.
