Bluenotes Community June Meetup to Discuss Guidelines for Instructors in Interpreting and Reporting Results

calendarWednesday, June 29th 2022, 02:00 PM - 03:00 PM Eastern Timezone34 days remaining

Over the past few years, Bluenotes Community members have identified the need for consistent recommendations and guidelines to help instructors interpret evaluation/assessment data to effectively inform teaching and course planning. A group of thought-leading practitioners in the Bluenotes Reporting & Analytics Community have collaborated to build a document of guidelines which centers around a common framework of language associated with reporting of evaluation data - the "Guidelines for Instructors in Interpreting and Reporting Quantitative Feedback" document and the "Guidelines for Instructors in Interpreting and Reporting Qualitative Feedback" document.

We'd like to invite you to meet monthly, starting January 2022 through June 2022, to further develop this document by incorporating feedback from you in Blue-using institutions around the world. The final result will be shared at the Bluenotes GLOBAL 2022 conference in Chicago (July 30-August 3, 2022).

Date: Wednesday, June 29, 2022

Time: Select a meetup in a time zone convenient to you.
