Committee Charge

The VALE Assessment Committee will collect and review statistics and other data to be used by the VALE Executive Committee for formal assessments of VALE activities and resources and will serve as a clearinghouse for pertinent assessment, evaluation, and statistical information and resources for the VALE membership, including activities of other consortia. The Committee will seek to recommend assessment methodologies for evaluating organizational goals and outcomes that will measure and express the value of VALE to the membership as well as to outside bodies. Assessment methodologies may include the use of focus group interviews conducted by member libraries with their campus constituencies, statistical reports, or other qualitative and quantitative methods for collecting the desired data. The Committee will work closely with other VALE committees to determine needed information and the best methods for collecting the desired data.
