Institutional Assessment

All of our assessment efforts focus on how to continually improve the services we deliver to our students and employees. This philosophy is further reinforced through our accreditation process.

Our accrediting body (the Middle States Commission for Higher Education) organizes assessment into two useful areas: Institutional Effectiveness (see Institutional Research) and Educational Effectiveness.

Educational Effectiveness

The Educational Assessment Committee (EAC) was established as a permanent committee in shared governance at the College in April 2011. The primary mission of the EAC is to ensure that student learning is regularly and skillfully assessed and that the results of these assessment activities are used to strengthen educational programs and inform resource allocation across the institution. The EAC also is responsible for ensuring that the College meets the intent and the technical requirements of Middle States Commission on Higher Education, Standard 14.

Reporting Support

As part of our efforts to facilitate and streamline reporting, an annual assessment update form will be available soon at EAC 2013-14 Update.

In addition, an end of the year online form has been developed and is available at EAC 2013-14 Report.
