Assessment Committee


The Mission of the Assessment Committee is to ensure that comprehensive plans are in place for outcome assessment at all levels of CR. The AC supports the collaborative efforts of faculty and staff to enhance student success by providing guidance, assistance, and structure for continual improvement through outcome assessment.


The Assessment Committee provides guidance to committees and individuals about how and why assessment should be conducted, facilitates discussions and decision-making related to assessment work, offers training in all levels of assessment, and helps to ensure that outcomes assessment is embedded in college processes as directed by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges (ACCJC), the Western Association for Schools and Colleges (WASC), the California Community College Chancellor’s Office (CCCO), the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges (ASCCC) and other accreditation and governance organizations. The committee coordinates collegial dialogue and ensures that the assessment process is ongoing and sustainable at the department, program, and institutional level. The Assessment Committee envisions a college in which regular outcome assessment, and the review and interpretation of relevant data, inform all levels of department, program, division, and institution planning toward the goal of improving student learning and success.

To support its mission, the AC provides guidance to related committees including, but not limited to, the Program Review Committee, the Curriculum Committee, and the Enrollment Management Committee. The Assessment Committee functions in close connection with the Program Review Committee and the Institutional Effectiveness Committee to review disciplinary, programmatic, and institutional assessment plans and to assist in the use and improvement of assessment toward increasing the quality of student learning. Through its annual planning cycle, corresponding with Program Review and the Integrated Planning Model, the Assessment Committee promotes continuous improvement toward student success.
