Melissa Holman and Rachel Carlson, from the College of Education and Human Development at Western Michigan University, shared this poster at the Assessment in Action Conference 2016 on April 8. They were the recipients of one of the 2015-2016 WMU Assessment Fellows Grants to conduct research on assessment of student learning outcomes. The focus of this project was to expose WMU CEHD First Year Seminar students to a strengths-based curriculum, coach them to apply their strengths, expose the students to campus resources and supports, enhance their student experience to help with retention, and increase the self-reported level of intrinsic motivation. This poster provided information regarding their assessment project.
