Watch for a flyer or bookmark at CCCC 2011 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 and distribute them in assessment-related sessions.
