Whittier Law School to Host Assessment Conference for ABA Accredited Law Schools

Whittier-Law-School-Assessment-Conference-2015Saturday, November 14, 2015

Assessment in law schools is relatively new, and very little information currently exists on how law schools should conduct assessment. What do the terms mean? How do you set up an assessment program? How do you conduct assessment in the classroom? How do you create a culture of assessment at an institution and among the faculty? The purpose of this conference is to provide guidance on all of these questions and to offer a manageable approach to create a sustainable and successful assessment program.
