Jorge Lopez Presents Poster at Assessment Institute

Jorge Lopez presented, Assessment of a Science Identity Development Model with Minority STEM Community College Students: Did it work? during the poster session at the Assessment Institute conference in Indianapolis in October, 2018. Jorge conducted the pilot study and collected data as part of his HESA internship for IN LSAMP. Jorge noted the highlight of the presentation was an opportunity to display his hard work and accomplishment but also observe the findings of other professionals.

He received feedback from attendees who were interested in the results of his research project that focused on preparing community college students to work in research labs on a four-year campus.  For Jorge, this opportunity enabled him to network with the representatives from institutions in Texas, Arizona, Missouri, and others. Overall, the greatest success was promoting the LSAMP program and attendees expressed an interest in bringing an LSAMP program to their own campus.

Assessment Institute in Indianapolis

The Assessment Institute in Indianapolis is the nation's oldest and largest event focused exclusively on outcomes assessment in higher education. We anticipate that some 1000 educators from virtually every state and several other countries will take part in the 2018 Institute.

The Assessment Institute in Indianapolis is designed to provide opportunities for (1) individuals and campus teams new to outcomes assessment to acquire fundamental knowledge about the field, (2) individuals who have worked as leaders in outcomes assessment to share and extend their knowledge and skills, and (3) those interested in outcomes assessment at any level to establish networks that serve as sources of support and expertise beyond the dates of the Institute.
