Assessment Day

Assessment day is a semi-annual event hosted by UW-Whitewater as an opportunity to present, share, and converse about assessment and assessment related topics. Generally, a keynote speaker, a few concurrent presentations, and a poster session are included as a part of the exciting events of the day! Please come and help us celebrate and connect.

As this year is a LEAP Year, assessment posters were presented in collaboration with LEAP. To see highlights from this year's LEAP Day 2016 including the keynote presentation, employer panel, and a video about LEAP at UW-W, click here.

Assessment Day will be back in 2017 and we look forward to receiving your poster proposals then!
