This IR in Practice session conveys information related to the assessment of an innovative, campuswide utilization of a strengths-based, positive psychology framework. In fall 2011, the University of Minnesota Twin-Cities (UMNTC) offered 5,400 new first-year students the StrengthsFinder assessment within a larger framework of the StrengthsQuest higher education program. This session discusses the approaches UMNTC used in developing a conceptual framework for the assessment of strengths outcomes, describes the measures and instruments used in assessment, and discusses the collaborations developed between institutional research, student affairs, and academic affairs.
Presented at the Association for Institutional Research (AIR) annual forum, New Orleans, LA, June 5, 2012.
