Assessing learning can take months, if not years. By delegating the facilitation and mechanics of assessment to EduMetry, your institution can save much time and hard work. Decisions about retaining specialists usually examine only the direct, out-of-pocket costs, but when implicit costs (like faculty time, teaching-load reductions, support staff) are accounted for, relying on external specialists actually becomes an efficient solution. EduMetry can develop and map student learning outcomes, design rubrics, generate SLO data, analyze the data, and recommend actions for improvement in a fraction of the time that it would take your faculty, who must juggle competing demands on their time. Let your faculty guide the process; leave the mechanics of assessment to us.
Forges Consensus Quickly
Forging consensus at any institution of higher learning takes time. Meetings, exploratory committees…the process can take months, if not years, to reach common ground on major issues affecting your institution. EduMetry’s Assesstance™ workshops and D-Cube™ process uses the venerable Delphi Technique through an online forum to forge consensus on key aspects of the assessment-of-learning process. This collegial and inclusive, yet anonymous, process quickly forges consensus among faculty. Higher learning institutions with whom we have worked report wonderful results and an increased productivity using D-Cube™! Likewise, assessment is a means to improving teaching and learning, but the real improvements come in what your faculty do every day. Free them up to do more of what they do best—create and disseminate knowledge.
EduMetry’s services cost a fraction of what the total cost would be to build the capacity within your institution to assess learning outcomes. Plus, by turning to the professionals, valuable faculty and staff time can be focused on more mission-critical activities.
We have the capacity, resources, and talent to either complement your on-campus work or tackle the full spectrum of assessment needs.
Objective Feedback, Best Practices
Because you are delegating the scoring of student-learning artifacts to EduMetry, internal bias is reduced or eliminated. As a specialist in assessment of learning, EduMetry can introduce best practices, synthesized from its work at many other institutions.
Fosters a Learning Culture
We as higher education professionals are equally committed to seeing your students receive the best educational experience possible. Improvement is difficult, if not impossible, without constant measurement, feedback and corrective action. EduMetry’s end-to-end, faculty-driven processes ensure that your institution is always learning! Through the rigorous analysis and data-driven recommendations our work produces, your institution can improve and alter courses to suit your student needs. This translates into a progressive culture of evidence and continuous improvement that benefits your entire institution.
