The purpose of this session is to introduce participants to the Problem-Solving Analysis Protocol (P-SAP) and Cognitive Learning Scale, two instruments that may be used to assess outcomes of service learning and civic engagement related to problem-solving, critical thinking, and student perceptions of academic learning. Both tools are available for use at no charge; the authors simply request that those who use them share their findings in order to contribute to the ongoing development of the tools. Links to each tool and additional resources can be found at: http://departments.central.edu/psychology/faculty/psap/. The session will offer a brief background on the two tools, how and why each was developed, reliability and validity of each, scoring/coding procedures, appropriate uses for each instrument, and implications of results. Attention will also be given to how each tool could be used for further program development and improvement on the participants' campuses.
