Assessment Residency: Measuring Student Learning
Application Deadline: February 1, 2015
Developed for individuals who are asking questions about the purpose of their courses AND the effectiveness of their course assessments. The goals of the Assessment Residency are to:
• Develop measurable learning outcomes for courses or course modules grounded in research on teaching and learning;
• Implement, integrate, and align assessment strategies with course learning outcomes;
• Explore opportunities to develop a research study analyzing student learning; and
• Create a community of practitioners to sustain improvements in teaching and learning.
Each Residency Program is a yearlong commitment comprised of several key training components including face-to-face meetings, online “homework” assignments, and specialized peer mentoring. The Assessment Training Institute will be held June 17-20, 2015.

The mission of the Biology Scholars Program is to empower biologists to be leaders in science education reform and catalyze professional societies to sustain undergraduate education reform. The Program, funded in part by the National Science Foundation, is one model for transforming undergraduate biology education as set forth in the AAAS publication, Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education: A Call to Action (pp. 60-61).
Who are the Biology Scholars?
The Biology Scholar Alumni community includes over 260 national and international biology educators from community colleges, undergraduate institutions, and doctoral-granting universities, who are involved in one or more disciplinary societies.
