Dr. Melanie Booth, dean of learning and assessment, will join a panel discussion on the purpose, capacity and culture of assessment at the Oregon Program Evaluator's Network 2013 conference, held March 15 in Portland.

The interactive panel session on higher education assessment will feature Melanie Booth, Marylhurst University; Tanya Ostrogorsky, Oregon Health Sciences University; Vicki Wise and Rowanna Carpenter, Portland State University; and Linda Reisser, Portland Community College. The panel will include discussion about the importance of considering assessment purpose; capacity building for assessment; institutional culture as context for assessment; and the pressures for credible evidence to demonstrate learning and program success.

Founded in 1997, the Oregon Program Evaluators Network is an organization for professionals who are involved with or interested in program evaluation. OPEN allows for the exchange of ideas and information to promote and encourage high-quality evaluation practices. The members of OPEN represent a wide variety of government agencies, non-profits, universities and private consulting firms.

Kim Firth Leonard, assessment research coordinator at Marylhurst University, is currently serving as OPEN's president.
