Complimentary Webinar on Learning Assessment in Higher Education

On November 17, University of Phoenix will present a complimentary webinar on learning assessment in higher education. In this hour-long webcast, thought leaders from within the higher education community will speak to the challenges of assessing student performance and progress, and will raise important questions — Is it enough to measure cognitive abilities alone? What other factors play a role in student success in higher education programs?

Discussion will cover some of the following topics:

  • Cognitive abilities and other potential predictors of student success
  • The affective side of the learner
  • Changing student demographics and related effects on learning assessment
  • Measuring grit and the ability to persevere through adversity

Please feel free to forward this invitation to anyone you think might be interested. All are welcome to attend.
