University Assessment Study Group

 University Assessment Study Group    
  The University Assessment Study Group has been created to give more visibility to discussions about assessment, to provide a forum for conversation across disciplines, and to increase the chances that these discussions will lead to a collaborative and productive outcome.  Begun in Spring 2012, the study group will explore and develop innovative approaches to assessment that are consistent with the goals of a Fordham education.  Reports and proposals from this group will help circulate potential models for assessment.      
  Faculty interested in joining the group are always welcome!  Contact Jeannine Pinto, the University Assessment Officer, at
