LLAMA Webinar examines differences between assessment and evaluation

The terms assessment and evaluation are sometimes used interchangeably, but they have distinct meanings and purposes.  The Library Leadership and Management Association’s Measurement, Assessment and Evaluation Section (LLAMA-MAES) will present “What is Assessment?”, on Wed., Oct. 1, at 1:30 – 3:00 PM (Central time).

This webinar will present a panel of assessment experts responding to scripted questions crafted to distinguish how assessment differs from evaluation. The webinar is an extension of research conducted by Consuella Askew and Eileen Theodore-Shusta appearing in Library Leadership & Management (November 2013) concerning how librarians learn assessment.

By the end of this webinar participants will:

  • Differentiate/distinguish between the terms assessment and evaluation.
  • Understand how assessment can be applied in libraries beyond Information Literacy.
  • Distinguish when assessment or evaluation is needed.

Presenters:  Steve Hiller, Director of Assessment, University of Washington Library; and Dr. Danuta Nitecki, Dean of Libraries, Drexel University.
