Assessment at CCD

Common Questions Regarding Assessment

Why do we engage in assessment?

  • It increases awareness of what students are learning.
  • It provides a framework for faculty discussions of course and program design.
  • It is a systematic method for departmental sequencing, planning, and improvements.
  • It makes learning intentional by explicitly stating expectations for learning.

What is assessment?

Assessment focuses on analyzing student learning to determine whether students have acquired the skills, knowledge, and competencies associated with their program of study.

What tools do we have at CCD to assist with assessment?

How do we know assessment works?

  • Please read our most current copy of our annual assessment report. (Coming Soon!)

How do I get more involved?

Please connect with your Student Learning Committee (SLC) co-chairs Karey James or Chris Holcom to get more involved. Thanks!

Assessments

Every year, CCD presents a day where we provide a summary of our current assessment activities, and engage in professional development to improve our assessment practices. This is a highly informative event with participants from both faculty and staff. Please join us as we continue our assessment journey.
