Assessment and evaluation are considered systematic and ongoing processes that collect aggregate data about what students know and can do based on measurable student learning outcomes and institutional effectiveness for:
- General Education
- Student Services
Data and information resulting from the assessment and evaluation process serve to inform improvements in pedagogy, course content, the curriculum, learning resources, and student services. Because the assessment process should be college-owned, faculty-engaged, and administratively-supported, utilization of assessment and evaluation data by faculty, students and administration is designed to improve student performance, student development, and student achievement.
