Consider Communication and Dissemination of Findings

The assessment and evaluation staff can make recommendations about where to publish the results of your assessment studies.  Since our activities are conducted at the request of a faculty member or investigator, the information gathered belongs to that person.  It is the investigator’s choice as to whether to convey information to oversight authorities (internal or external to the Institute) or to publicize findings. Assessment results are not used in any way for faculty or staff evaluation.

Assessment and evaluation staff can assist and/or collaborate with faculty members and investigators in the preparation and presentation of written reports, conference presentations, posters, and manuscripts for publication. The degree of involvement can range from simple suggestions to co-authorship. With the permission of the instructors and investigators, TLL can disseminate results about educational and technological innovations both within and outside the Institute through written reports, journal articles, and presentations.
