Save the Date: RIT will host the 2014 ANNY Conference

RIT has been selected to host the 2014 Assessment Network of New York (ANNY) Conference.  The conference will be held April 28-30, 2014.  ANNY was formed in 2010 with the primary objective of creating a state-wide network to stimulate dialogue and the exchange of ideas related to assessment across institutions and to provide support and resources to those committed to meaningful assessment of student learning and institutional effectiveness.

This year's theme is Using Assessments to Drive Improvement: Practical Applications from the Field. The objective is to provide those engaged in assessment with an opportunity to share examples of how assessments have been used to improve teaching, learning, and institutional effectiveness.  Assessment professionals from all academic and administrative areas, as well as faculty and staff members, are welcome to attend.
