On Friday, April 17, faculty from across the College were honored for their successful completion of eleven separate academic assessment projects at MCC’s Sixth Annual Assessment Awards Reception.
Some of the assessment projects were focused on the assessment of student learning in general education, while others centered on the evaluation of degree programs and certificates. What all of these projects shared was a common base of success in moving MCC forward in promoting self-reflection in areas of student learning, program success, and faculty support of both students and programs.
In addition to the recognition awards offered to each faculty assessment leader for the successful completion of their respective projects, awards of merit were also offered by faculty from the College Assessment and Program Evaluation (CAPE) Committee, and by the academic deans. Interim Provost and Vice-President of Academic Services Jeff Bartkovich, and Interim Dean of Curriculum MaryJo Witz each gave brief welcoming comments to attendees of the reception. Michael Heel, Assistant Director of Curriculum and Assessment, acted as host for the event.
Today, the College community can join in congratulating Cristin Finch for receiving the (Deans’) “Award of Merit for the Most Notable Contribution to an Assessment Project by a Faculty Assessment Leader.” The comments shared at the awards reception for Cristin’s successful techniques in evaluating the Health Studies program are attached for everyone to review.
