Honorary Member

Honorary membership is awarded to a person who has made extraordinary contributions to the Teaching Academy or to faculty development at NMSU.

Shelly Stovall, Director of Assessment

Shelly Stovall’s background is in music and education. She earned a bachelors’ degree in music, master’s degrees in music and in curriculum and instruction, and a Ph.D. in educational administration. She joined the teaching faculty in the Department of Music at NMSU in 1991, and it was her graduate studies that ignited her passion for student learning assessment. Shelly has served on and chaired several university assessment committees, has spoken locally and regionally on the subject, and has committed herself to improving student learning through advancing understanding and use of authentic assessment practices. In 2007 and 2008 she participated in the NMHEAA summer retreat as a team member, and led a team at the 2009 retreat. She will be taking another team this summer to work on general education outcomes assessment. Shelly currently serves as director of assessment. She has given three workshops on assessment at the Teaching Academy and spearheaded the new ChAMPION outcomes assessment program that begins in the summer of 2010.
