Assessment Committee

Scope

The Assessment Committee is a college committee responsible for coordinating outcomes assessment and assessment training and ensuring that assessment information is utilized at the disciplinary, programmatic and institutional levels. The Mission of the Assessment Committee is to ensure that adequate plans are in place for outcomes assessment. The Assessment Committee coordinates program level dialogue, as well as small- and large-scale institutional dialogue, and ensures that the assessment process is ongoing and sustainable at the disciplinary, programmatic and institutional levels. The Assessment Committee envisions a college in which regular assessments of outcomes and achievements, and the review and interpretation of relevant data, inform all levels of disciplinary, divisional, departmental, and institutional planning toward the ultimate goal of improving student learning. 

The Assessment Committee will function in close connection with the Program Review Committee and the Institutional Effectiveness Committee to review disciplinary, programmatic and institutional assessment plans and assist in the use and improvement of assessment toward increasing the quality of student learning. Through regularly scheduled annual review cycles corresponding with the Program Review Committee's and the Institutional Effectiveness Committee's Executive Summaries, the Assessment Committee will assist in planning and re-calibrating assessment, dialogue, and recommendations resulting from dialogue at all levels.
