Outcomes Assessment and Research Toolbox

Earlier this year, the Forum’s Outcomes Assessment and Research Committee launched a new member benefit: an online toolbox for sharing assessment tools and strategies. The Committee has designed the Outcomes Assessment and Research Toolbox as a resource for one of education abroad’s biggest challenges: assessing education abroad outcomes. This toolbox is intended for members who are new to assessment, and members already involved in assessment and ready to take additional steps forward. The sections of the Toolbox include: Case Studies, Assessment Texts, Assessment Tools, a Glossary of Assessment and Research Terminology, Assessment Bibliography, and other resources.

Access the Outcomes Assessment and Research Toolbox.
