    Faculty Development that Fosters Inclusive Excellence: Equity in Assessment and Measurement

    Overview

    In this collection, we are sharing the various assessment, design, and implementation materials created by a team at James Madison University to create faculty development opportunities to foster inclusive excellence. The intention of sharing these materials under creative commons license is to provide other organizations or institutions a starting place to engage in a valuable and deep process of identifying the needs of specific groups of faculty (in this case faculty from a public institution of higher education in the USA) in terms of supporting their knowledge, skills, and abilities to integrate practices and content that foster inclusive excellence. This content was developed in partnership with a faculty from the Assessment and Measurement department and Instructional Designers.

    Needs Assessment for Faculty Development to Foster Inclusive Excellence: Equity in Assessment and Measurement

    The survey was developed after an initial presentation with the Assessment and Measurement faculty. The initial meeting included activities and dialogue to begin hearing about the needs of our specific audience. The survey contains explicit references to our university and program which can be adapted to other contexts. Finally, the survey also includes critical framing around using the expectancy-value theory to develop the questions.
