Assessment - Help & Teams: Assessment at CCAC


At CCAC, a Culture of Assessment means:

  • Our core values are based on continuous improvement of student learning
  • Faculty, staff and administration engage in meaningful reflective assessment work
  • Results of assessment activities lead to changes in educational activities in order to improve learning outcomes as well as curriculum
  • Results of assessment activities are used to distribute resources throughout the College

Assessment Process
  1. Establish clear, observable expected goals for student learning
  2. Ensure that students have sufficient opportunities to achieve those goals
  3. Systematically gather, analyze, and interpret evidence of how well student learning meets those goals
  4. Use the resulting information to understand and improve student learning

Over the course of the Spring 2021 semester, a group of faculty and administrators have been discussing the data and commentary collected back in January’s All College Day meetings. The document below is a brief summary of the analysis and discussion. The recording of the subsequent discussion of the findings advanced College-wide conversation on these important topics.
