Assessment at Kennedy-King College

Assessment at Kennedy-King CollegeAn essential component of Kennedy-King College’s effort to improve student learning.

At the City Colleges of Chicago, assessment is considered a systematic and ongoing process that collects aggregate data about what students know and can do based on measurable student learning outcomes for:             

  • Institutional Learning Outcomes  – Communication, Self-Evauation, Human Diversity, Scientific Inquiry, Math and Technology, and Humanities
  • Career and Technical Education programs
  • Core courses for our academic disciplines

Data and information resulting from the assessment process serve to inform improvements in pedagogy, course content, the curriculum, learning resources, and student services.  Because the assessment process must be faculty owned, faculty driven, and administratively supported, utilization of assessment data by faculty is designed to improve student performance, student development, and student achievement.
