Abstract Title: Viewing the assessment of instructional reform through the eyes of the stakeholders
Abstract: The Physics Program at Chicago State University is engaged in projects that focus on student content understanding, attitudes, and reasoning skills.  Assessment results are reported to a number of stakeholders, including the funding agency, the University, the physics faculty, the physics education community, and the CSU students.  It is naive to think that each of these stakeholders shares a common vision about the goals and objectives of the project.  In addition, it is naive to believe that each assessment focus serves the interests of our students.  In many cases a focus on the interests of an individual stakeholder, or even multiple stakeholders can cause us to overlook the development of many of the qualities we value in our students.  We present a variety tools that focus on our diverse assessment goals.  Participants at the session will discuss how the different stakeholders would view each of these tools and its results.
