[Clinical Session Presentation] Closing the assessment feedback loop is the hallmark of a sound assessment program. This presentation introduces an innovative, time-efficient portfolio assessment program that has demonstrated closing the assessment feedback loop in just 3 ½ years after program implementation.  A major reason for this success is that the portfolio program planners carefully constructed the program to include faculty collaboration and participation in the process.  All full-time faculty members are involved in the reading and scoring of portfolios. Portfolios are assessed as a composite of several pieces of student work by trained faculty teams. Following the reading and scoring of portfolios, faculty members discuss strengths and weaknesses of the portfolios that were reviewed and identify curricular issues that need to be resolved. This discussion time is a great opportunity for faculty to share teaching experiences and assignment ideas. It also is a time for faculty to individually reflect on what they are doing in their classes that might need improvement. As a result, some faculty members have changed course assignments to rectify program weaknesses noted in the portfolio assessment findings. This presentation will describe the details of faculty participation in this cutting-edge portfolio program that has wide application for nursing programs internationally.
