The position of Assessment Coordinator includes primary commitment to implement and supervise the assessment plan of the College of Education under the leadership of the Dean of the College of Education.
Assessment Coordinator for the College of Education (COE) provides on-going, faculty-based evaluation for improving the quality of all the COE Programs and ensuring that outcomes achieved are consistent with the mission and goals of COE and CIU. Although assessment, as well as the accreditation process, is the responsibility of virtually every member of the University community, the function of the Assessment Coordinator is to be involved closely in the assessment process, primarily by managing—and eventually directing—the College of Education assessment, accreditation and licensure activities. These duties will include such activities as organizing the process with timelines, conducting constituent surveys, compiling information, providing an information database, collecting and entering data, completing files, analyzing statistics, providing feedback and information to the unit and programs for evaluative decision making, developing rubrics and charts, writing reports, testing, making modifications to assessments and the assessment process, attending meetings, keeping minutes and records, working with advisory council and stakeholders, keeping abreast of changes to standards, meeting with faculty and candidates, creating and revising course schedules and forms, working as a team with faculty to organize periodic events for prospective students and candidates and performing other related duties as required. Ultimately, the information gathered will be used to strengthen the College of Education programs by examining and revising: (1) the alignment of instruction and curriculum with CIU, professional, state and institutional standards; (2) the efficacy of courses, field experiences, and programs and (3) candidates’ attainment of dispositions, content knowledge and demonstration of teaching and leading that leads to student learning.
The development of students is at the heart of the purpose of the College of Education. All members of the education team are called upon to embody and to implement CIU’s purpose and mission, To Know Him and To Make Him Known, as well as the educational philosophy of the College of Education and its conceptual framework. The College of Education focuses on equipping Christian educators to think, teach and lead biblically in educational settings throughout the world. This is accomplished by facilitating student growth in biblical knowledge, spiritual maturity, ministry orientation and the professional skills necessary for service in a variety of cultural contexts.
