Part I: A Faculty Lens - Validating Military Learning Experiences

December 6, 2017
2:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. (ET)   

Faculty evaluators for ACE directly affect and assure validity behind every ACE-recommended credit for educational experiences of service members and veterans. Attendees heard from ACE faculty evaluators as they shared insight on their unique experiences. They learned about the expertise, affiliations, and accomplishments common among teams and how this work enriches military learners, plus the faculty member’s own professional legacy. They explored answers to the burning questions: (1) what issues affect acceptance of recommended credit, and (2) how can we increase the quality alignment of acceptance?​​

Are military credit recommendations and complex transcript data making you crazy? Attendees joined the ACE team to learn more about how to read and interpret the JST. The team showcased how the data are managed once the evaluation team finishes their work and illuminated the quality assurance processes of the JST. The team demonstrated search functionality with the Military Guide in order to display index-level report functionality of the system. Attendees learned the trends, tips and tricks to mitigate frustrations​.
