Division of Student Affairs Aggies RISE Student Employee Assessment Spring 2016
In 2012,based on the University of Iowa's GROW (Guided Reflection on Work) program, the TAMU Division of Student Affairs (DSA) created Aggies RISE (Reflecting and Integrating Student Employment) to assess what students were learning from their student worker positions within the DSA. In 2012-2013 the Aggies RISE committee developed a pre- and post-survey to measure these identified outcomes. In addition, supervisors volunteered that year to be part of the pilot project to have conversations with their student workers using a structured interview protocol. The purpose was to have students reflect on how their on-the-job learning may have an impact on their academics and career choices.In 2016,
Aggies RISE wanted to continue assessing the student employees throughout the Division to look at these common learning outcomes, as well as opportunities for student employees to reflect on their employment, connections between students’ work and the classroom or their future careers, and how student employment positions fit the criteria for being considered a high impact practice. However the 2015-2016 assessment included only one survey sent out near the end of the 2015-2016 academic year to student employees with the DSA. The attached report summarizes the results of that survey.
