The Results Forum is the culminating event of the Academy for Assessment of Student Learning. It is designed to showcase a institution’s assessment work and progress while participating in the Academy; and to focus on sustainability and advancement plans for the future.

The team at the institution that has been responsible for Academy work to date and for planning future work should plan to attend the Forum, as a significant portion of the Forum’s schedule will be devoted to sustaining assessment and improvement of learning efforts.

The first half of the Forum will showcase the work of the institutions attending the Forum, while the second half will provide teams with mentors to help them develop their plans for sustaining and advancing that work.
