Transformational Education Initiative

Massachusetts Assessment Professional Development Network


Welcome to MAPDN

Welcome to the online home of MAPDN, the Massachusetts Assessment Professional Development Network. MAPDN is the host to online conversation about assessment, teaching, and learning for Massachusetts higher education faculty and professionals. MAPDN is a product of AMCOA (Advancing a Massachusetts Culture of Assessment), a faculty-driven initiative of the Vision Project. AMCOA is a state-wide community of faculty, administrators, and education professionals from institutions across Massachusetts who work together to examine and discuss assessment issues and practices. While AMCOA currently meets as a state-wide group as well as regional teams and at state-wide conferences throughout the year, MAPDN is our outlet for continuing discussion, collaboration, and crowdsourcing.      

For more information about AMCOA and other Vision Project initiatives, see the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education’s website on student learning.
