We’ve just expanded the AAQEP workshop offerings to include a focus on validity, reliability, and other data-quality issues—as requested by several of you! I’m happy to announce the inaugural “Learning From Data: Accuracy and Equity” workshops will be held this summer in New York, Texas, and North Carolina.
As you know, examining the quality of the quantitative and qualitative data your program gathers is part of responsible inquiry. Ensuring that measures yield valid and trustworthy results allows your program to make confident decisions as it works toward continuous improvement.
In the AAQEP accreditation process, data quality is addressed explicitly in Appendix G of the Quality Assurance Report (self-study)—including the processes your program has used to establish the validity, reliability, fairness, and trustworthiness of instruments and the results of these investigations.
Our all-day workshop will help you understand and apply these core concepts of data quality and guide you in developing a plan to ensure that your systems are accurate, equitable, and able to support program improvement.
Here’s the schedule—please join us!
June 6 – Hofstra University (NY)
July 9 – University of Texas at Arlington
August 23 – Lenoir-Rhyne University (NC)
Registration runs $275 per person with the AAQEP member discount (or even less if you bring more than 5 people). While the workshop is geared toward AAQEP members, it’s also open to nonmembers (for $325) and has no prerequisites.
Visit our workshop page for details about all of AAQEP’s workshop offerings. We hope to see you at an event soon!
