The Mission of Academic Assessment is to assist faculty in the design and implementation of assessment and evaluation processes.  Academic Assessment seeks to promote engagement in assessment by providing:

  • Training opportunities
  • Sharing best-practices
  • Offering consultative services
  • Encouraging discourse on related educational topics throughout the college community

Teaching, Learning and Assessment are complementary.  As our faculty design programs and courses that equip students with the skills necessary to succeed in a profession or at a transfer institution; the process of assessment provides opportunities to understand the degree to which students are successful in acquiring those skills.

Through the systematic process of assessment and evaluation, the College can make informed decisions about the design and implementation of its degree-based and general education programs.

Foundations for Student Success IV: Closing the Assessment Loop approved by the Faculty Senate June 9, 2011 is the college’s assessment plan.
