This study addressed the challenges of developing a faculty professional development workshop on assessment, measurement, and evaluation of achievement in adult learners. The setting for the workshop was a system of postsecondary career colleges throughout the United States. The curriculum development model of D. Kirkpatrick (1994) was used as a tool to guide the decision-making process. Prior to the workshop, a needs assessment including trainers, clients, and managers was conducted to determine the framework of the program. Instructional objectives were established based on the content identified in the needs assessment. Following a review of instructional objectives, the workshop addressed assessment techniques in the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains of learning. Both formative and summative evaluations provided feedback on the workshop. An appendix contains the faculty needs assessment questionnaire. (Contains 16 references.) (Author/SLD)
