Building an Assessment Plan
"What gets measured gets done." – Peter Brucker. This statement holds a lot of truth, but we can't measure everything that we do and we certainly can't assess it all at once. Join us for a quick tutorial on assessment planning that will help you to organize and schedule your assessment efforts so they are manageable and more likely to succeed.
