Advancing a Massachusetts Culture of Assessment (AMCOA)

Classroom at Roxbury Community College

Advancing a Massachusetts Culture of Assessment (AMCOA) is led by a team of faculty and staff from each of the 28 undergraduate campuses, with the goal of advancing assessment of student learning through information sharing about best practices and campuses experiences; provision of faculty and staff professional development opportunities; and cross-institution, collaborative experiments with assessment approaches and technology. AMCOA was funded by the David Educational Foundation from May 2011 until May 2013, and is now supported by the DHE and the campuses.

Membership consists of representatives from each of the 28 public higher education campuses, appointed by the respective president/chancellor. The AMCOA team is led by the Board of Higher Education Director of Learning Outcomes Assessment. View the membership team >
