Planning Committee

What is the National Assessment Planning Committee?

The National Assessment Planning Committee is a twelve-member group of assessment leaders across the country and nationally.  The Committee was established at the first virtual meeting on August 15, 2022. NAW was created by  Dr. Sakile K. Camara, the Director of Academic Assessment and Program Review at California State University, Northridge. She served as the first Chair with two co-Chairs, Dr. Carmen M. Lee from the University of Southern California and Takiya Moore from Western Governor's University. 

The mission of the National Assessment Planning Committee is to ensure sufficient resources and activities are generated to support assessment administrators. NAW is not an organization; it is a movement and a resource.

The planning committee meets twice a year (2nd week in September and February) to vote on a theme and reemphasize the importance of a national movement and a shared discourse around assessment practices. The planning committee also makes decisions around National Assessment Week and brings regional issues and concerns that impact each region to be addressed during NAW. This planning committee will help design and implement educational assessment activities for the week and are committed to offering an event for National Assessment Week attendees.
