Institutional Planning, Development, and Evaluation facilitate this process.
Assessment at ACC takes place at all levels of the institution. In the area of instruction, Program-level Student Learning Outcomes (PSLOs), General Education Competencies, and Course-level Learning Outcomes are assessed, with the assessment plans, results, and ensuing action strategies for general education and PSLOs described in the TracDat database. This information also guides the departments’ planning of longer-term goals. All of a discipline’s PSLOs should be assessed within a three year period.
The assessment process aligns with the Institution’s mission statement and strategic plan.
