Proof is in the evidence. This semester, I knocked on CITI’s door three times; each for a different reason. But it was the Midterm Assessment Plan (MAP) that made the most impact. After the MAPs, the CITI team helped me revise and refine my classroom assessment tools in a way that revitalized coursework. Now that I have reviewed student reflections about this semester, I can truly say that CITI faculty helped me become a better listener and more effective educator. ~Dr. Cecile Yancu
