Director of CLIP Assessment

The Columbus College of Art & Design is seeking its inaugural Director of Assessment for a unique competency-based education project called Credit for Life Integrated Portfolio (CLIP). Formed in partnership between CCAD and Franklin University, the CLIP Program will be an easy to use web-based portal that serves to decrease students’ educational costs by enabling them to submit a digital portfolio of prior learning that can be assessed for college credit. The Assessment Director’s role also includes assessment of current and future online learning initiatives that connect to CLIP.

The Director of CLIP Assessment will develop a variety of evaluation plans for the CLIP initiative, including the development of a comprehensive continuous assessment plan that links with the assessment efforts of both CCAD and Franklin University. As the project unfolds, the Director of Clip Assessment will work with the Director of the CLIP Program project and appropriate CCAD and Franklin administration to develop the narrative that explains the CLIP project’s effectiveness and its compliance with accreditation standards.

In Practice:
We seek a colleague who is experienced in program assessment, especially in online environments, and who is familiar with compliance reporting requirements in higher education. Preference will be given to those with demonstrated experience with competency-based rubric development (both holistic and analytic) and who have demonstrated experience in reporting results at both a formative and summative level. A knowledge base, including current assessment practices and methodology, as well as an ability to work with a diverse group of faculty and their areas of discipline expertise, is essential.

In Teaching:
We aspire to create effective evaluation systems that provide the CLIP Program the ability to evolve in delivering online results that are equivalent to traditional courses, and we value the collegial exchange of ideas that develop authentic, evidence-based results.

In Service:
We expect counsel in the assessment of the CLIP program and its ability to tie to the current and future evaluation efforts of CCAD and Franklin University, as well as active engagement with professional organizations that develop best practices assessment. We welcome candidates who will diversify our staff and faculty in regards to race, gender and ethnicity.

Position: Director of CLIP Assessment, full time
