The impact of indirect measures on assessment
[ Webinar ] Tuesday, June 18, 2 pm ET

A holistic assessment strategy requires direct measurement of student progress, indirect measures of the learning experience, and a fresh perspective on what you’re tracking and why. From defining what to measure, establishing strong measurement practices, and applying what you’ve learned to your strategic plan, this panel discussion will show you insights from other higher education leaders who have successfully broadened their approach.

Our panelists answer questions such as:

  • Where do you make use of indirect measures?
  • How do accreditors like SACSCOC respond to indirect measures vs. direct measures?
  • What types of indirect measures are most valuable to your institution?

They also share best practices including how to creatively apply indirect measures to non-academic outcomes.


  • Jeffrey Guenther, Assistant Provost for Planning, Budgeting & Assessment, Athens State University
  • Linda Townsend, Director of Assessment, Longwood University

"Watermark helps us keep the students we've worked so hard to recruit and see them across the finish line, which in turn improves the bottom line of the college."

"Everything was siloed in our college... no one really had access to everything. With Watermark, we were able to pull everything into one location, which gives faculty, staff, advisors, and leadership the same tool. They can see everything holistically."
