Coordinates all Student Learning Outcomes Assessment
In order to maintain administrative oversight of the entire range of campus assessment activities, an Assessment Team meets at least once per semester to set college-wide assessment goals, plan for the Community College Survey of Student Engagement and Noel-Levitz schedules, and assess needs of faculty and staff in regard to assessment training.
For today's student, learning is more than simply acquiring knowledge. While learning certainly involves mastery of subject matter, it also requires the application of that knowledge, the discovery and utilization of resources, and the solving of problems. Such learning may occur anywhere in the college environment and is not restricted to interactions between students and instructors in a classroom. Instead, the entire campus works together to support student growth and development for life long learning.
Overall, such an on-going student outcomes assessment process works to improve institutional effectiveness. This process uses multiple measures of valid, reliable, and relevant assessment procedures, both quantitative and qualitative, to monitor and improve courses, services, and programs. The data collected over time will provide information for curriculum reform, broad-based planning, resource allocation, organizational leadership, institutional governance, and staff and student development. This information is used to improve instruction, student, and community services, and to certify academic excellence for the college clientele and constituencies.
In addition to meeting state and accreditation requirements, this ongoing assessment process will provide the campus the following opportunities:
