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.
