Faculty facing either an initial nursing accreditation, or those preparing for a re-affirmation of accreditation visit, need to amass evidence demonstrating how the program is evaluated for achievement of program outcome using reliable and valid measurements. One of the most valuable resources of this evidence is a collection of student performance data from teacher-made and standardized exams used throughout the curriculum. How can faculty demonstrate that the exams they deliver to students are both reliable and valid? The purpose of this webinar is to discuss how faculty can incorporate assessment data and related analysis into their curriculum evaluation processes; establish that the teacher-made and standardized exams administered throughout the program are reliable and valid; and include assessment findings in the accreditation self-study that demonstrate compliance with nationally-recognized education standards in nursing.
