Hard Measures For 'Soft Skill' Learning Goals

A recording of the webinar with accreditation expert, Dr. Erich Dierdorff

Virtually every school has a learning goal related to interpersonal or leadership skills. Yet, schools routinely struggle with how to measure these important goals. When schools do operationalize these goals, it’s usually with less than robust measures like tests, term papers, self-reflection essays, and so forth. But just because we call them ‘soft skills’ doesn’t mean they need to be softly measured.

In this webinar, Dr. Erich Dierdorff outlines how your school can effectively capture key information for accreditation purposes on these difficult-to-measure learning goals while at the same time providing essential developmental feedback that facilitates the career success of your school’s future alumni.
