NAU Assessment Fair

15th Annual NAU Assessment Fair
Improving Student Learning, Development & Success

2016 Cheng Fox group
About 180 presenters and guests attended the 2016 NAU Assessment Fair.

The NAU Assessment Fair is an event of poster presentations representing the assessment efforts carried out by faculty, staff and students across the university.  

Roundtable discussions will be held immediately before the fair on current assessment topics. Watch for roundtable topics and registration information coming soon!


Abstracts are now being accepted for the 15th Annual Fair, which will be held at the High Country Conference Center on Wednesday, April 12, from 3 – 5 p.m. (Roundtables are from 2 – 2:50 p.m.).

We welcome posters that showcase assessment including student learning and development, needs and satisfaction, and success. Posters may also display assessment processes, designs, and/or strategies, not just results of assessment studies. We invite you to review information about past fairs to see the wide range of assessment topics that have been presented. 

We also welcome proposals that showcase projects representing Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL). These posters may include completed research studies, in-class activities that enhance student learning, and projects that will be carried out in the near future.

In addition to a “People’s Choice” prize determined by popular vote of attendees, a panel of judges will select and award a “Judge’s Choice” prize. This year, we are adding an additional “Judge’s Choice” prize for the best SOTL presentation.


If you would like to present a poster, please submit your abstract online. Abstracts should include a description of:

  • Purpose of the project
  • Theory and methods
  • Results/findings (where applicable)
  • Use or potential use of results

Abstracts are due by the end of the day on Friday, March 24, and will be reviewed to ensure that all areas noted above are included.

All poster submissions will be accepted unless no clear assessment focus is described in the abstract. You will be contacted if clarification is needed.


Click on the “Presenter Information” link on the blue sidebar for more information.

Note: All presenters will be sent more information about the fair setup and expectations after submissions close.

We look forward to seeing you and your posters at the fair!
