Discussion Guide

Now that your team has completed the assessment, the Discussion Guides will help you reflect on the results and plan your next steps. Discussion guides structure conversation in three areas: students, program quality and organizational capacity.

Teams will have the opportunity to explore the What, So What, and Now What of their work:

  • What: Teams discuss their individual assessment results, and compare the data/evidence they used to make their assessments.
  • So What: Teams use the compiled assessment results to identify and think about the strengths and gaps in their programs – for example, identifying ways to refine and expand their work.
  • Now What: Teams identify next steps. The goal at the end of the discussion is a strong action plan, with clear methods for measuring results.
