9781620363270: Coordinating Student Affairs Divisional Assessment: A Practical Guide (An ACPA / NASPA Joint Publication)

Co-published with ACPA, College Student Educators International and NASPA, The National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, Inc.
          

The need for the new role of student affairs assessment coordinator has emerged in response to the increasing demand for outcomes information, the proliferation of data, and the recognition that coordinating this work within divisions is of paramount importance.

For those taking on this role, this book constitutes a practical guide to leading and implementing an assessment program – whether doing so full- or part-time, as an individual or in a multi-person office, or whether reporting to or being in positional leadership.

Recognizing that this function that is new to student affairs, and that those who take it on frequently find themselves in an in-between world, being both embedded with, but also distinct from, their divisional colleagues, this book first addresses the common challenges and issues related to defining and implementing the role and cultivating a culture of assessment. It then deals with the practicalities of creating systems and structures; developing assessment skills throughout the organization; and creating an integrated model for measuring progress towards strategic planning goals, and for informing decision-making and resource allocation.

The book concludes with guidance on leading and maintaining ethical standards related to data collection, storage and sharing for the division, and on navigating the dynamic political environment that assessment professionals will encounter.

Review:

“Coordinating Student Affairs Divisional Assessment is a comprehensive A-Z guide to establishing, evolving and sustaining a student affairs division assessment program. The authors offer a practical and professionally grounded model to inform and support successful leadership of student affairs assessment.

The beauty and brilliance of “Coordinating Student Affairs Divisional Assessment is in the aggregate design it offers to demystify student affairs assessment and make successful leadership accessible.

This book should be on the reading list of every senior student affairs officer, regardless of where his or her division is in implementation of its assessment program, as [it] not only offers a process for initiating assessment program, but also provides a guide for evaluating the successful functioning of programs. Data will continue to be crucial to the success and survival of student affairs, as well as the successful stewardship of student affairs organizations and institutional resources. This book contributes greatly to our ability to have a positive and productive future.” (Larry D. Roper)
