McCann and co-speaker Dr. Craig Bach, associate vice provost for curriculum and assessment for Drexel University, will present a case history on how a Drexel faculty member successfully addressed issues of online student communication and assessment. They will demonstrate how rubric and self-assessment technologies resulted in improved student learning data; better, more efficient and higher quality feedback to students; and development of course dashboards.

McCann, an expert in rubric and assessment design who has worked with institutions ranging from grade school through graduate school, founded Waypoint Outcomes in 2003 to commercialize software he developed to improve feedback to learners while developing data on their achievement.

More than 35 institutions, including schools in the United States, Canada and Europe, use Waypoint Outcomes. The Web-based technology is used to create exceptional feedback for tens of thousands of students; to manage course evaluations; and to generate rich data on learning outcomes.
