 "Janice Stoudemire’s workshop on student learning outcomes was the best. Her use of examples and models provided valuable tools to effectively measure our student learning outcomes.  She is truly a maverick on student learning outcomes.”                             

             Dr. Anthony Negbenebor

              Gardner-Webb University

“Janice's workshops provided the foundation we needed to formalize our assessment process. With Janice's assistance and expertise, we now have a formal process in place to help us record, analyze and make necessary improvements. Thanks so much.”

"Be prepared to become fully engaged in a truly memorable learning experience. When you are finished with this session you will take away all of the 'hands on tools' to begin creating meaningful learning outcome assessment instruments that really work.”
