Committee on Assessment (November 2016) - Previous Revision

March 2010 Update

Watch for a flyer or bookmark at CCCC 2010 listing all assessment-related sessions!  The Assessment Committee will review the program in advance of the conference and create a guide to help attendees find sessions related to assessment.  We will leave them on tables in the program pick-up area.  We also encourage attendees to come to the Friday morning featured session on the role of committees in CCCC.  A representative of the Assessment Committee will participate in the session and will welcome your thoughts on ways that the committee could help the membership.
