One of the goals of the community college is to provide high quality programs for District residents. This goal relates to standards 11 and 14 of MSCHE. Standard 11: Educational Offerings – The institution’s educational offerings display academic content, rigor, and coherence appropriate to its higher education mission. The institution identifies student learning goals and objectives, including knowledge and skills, for its educational offerings. Standard 14: Student Learning and Assessment – Assessment of student learning demonstrates that, at graduation, or other appropriate points, the institution’s students have knowledge, skills, and competencies consistent with institutional and appropriate higher education goals. By working to meet Standards 11 and 14, the other standards in this area of Educational Effectiveness are addressed.
In keeping with the requirements that are embedded under Educational Effectiveness, the College has adopted eight (8) college wide student learning outcomes. They are as follows:
In 2010, the College developed a plan for assessing student learning. This included both program and course assessments. In keeping with this plan, the College has also developed a template that faculty must use to report on their findings related to student learning outcomes and action steps they plan to take to improve these outcomes. Taken together, these assessments are used to drive decisions regarding improvements in the areas of student learning, engagement, and teaching effectiveness, to name a few.
