The Commission for Assessment works to fulfill a dual mission. The first is to provide assessment tools, resources, and education for those new to assessment. The second is to provide a professional community and "home" for professionals who have all or a portion of their position dedicated to assessment. The work is carried out through our amazing volunteers who serve on our Directorate Board or volunteer throughout the year for various projects.

Current Board 2017

Our Directorate Board is made up of a variety of people all who are dedicated to helping us accomplish our mission. Each year the Directorate board develops teams, sets goals for each team and members work year-round to accomplish their goals. This year's goals include having fun, developing educational sessions targeted at new and mid-level professionals, developing our on-line tools and resources, providing educational sessions at Convention and solidifying our communications plans. If you like to write about assessment, plan or facilitate education sessions, help us better utilize social media or just want to learn more about assessment while applying your event planning or communication skills, consider running for our Directorate board.
