The committee shapes the college's approach to assessment by providing a common assessment language through SLO Assessment Plans and the standardized assessment reporting templates.  The committee strives to support a campus culture of assessment by encouraging assessment dialogue and sharing best practices to improve student learning and integrate results into college planning.

  • Provide guidance in identifying appropriate assessment measures for SLOs
  • Provide structure for mapping of outcomes (course, program, institution) and documentation of assessment results
  • Facilitate staff development on SLO assessment and reporting
