Brief Workshops

This assessment resource category is dedicated to brief workshops – the one-time, approximately 30-90 minute interaction with a group of students on a specific topic. 

The Career Center provides hundreds of workshops and presentations throughout the year. Our attendance can vary greatly, but on average over the past three years our brief workshops have drawn approximately 30 people. These are delivered by full time staff, graduate students, and undergraduate career services paraprofessionals. Topics are wide ranging, and often customized based on requests.

Muti-hour or Multi-Session Group Programs

Assessment resources in this category are based on The Career Center’s half-day to multi-session group programs. These career services programs include both teaching components and skill-building practice components, with a prolonged student engagement time that allows our assessment strategies to explore change over time. 

Changes explored may include areas such as: observed behavior (e.g., improved resume writing skills, improved networking pitch delivery), expressed career self-efficacy, perception of career barriers, etc. Here are some sample assessment resources, data presentations, and uses of assessment results:

Career Fairs and Other Large Events

An interesting assessment challenge is capturing meaningful data regarding large events, especially when career service professionals’ interactions with individual students may be brief. Here, we find creativity to be key! 

The examples below provide ideas and resources for manageable and meaningful assessment of large scale career fairs and events, whether you are trying to learn about needs, participation, satisfaction, or outcomes. 

(Don’t see exactly what you are looking for? We have a few examples up now, but are still building this site… will have more coming soon.)
