Improvement Planning Process
The interpretation and use of assessment results has historically been conducted at the department and program level, but we are also currently in the process of developing a new process for planning improvements to instruction, curriculum, and support services using a consistent Improvement Plan Form. See the Institutional Assessment Improvement Plan for an example of its use at the institution level for the 2017 Assessment Cycle.
Use of Assessment Results
See the 2016 Use of Results Overview for examples of how various programs are interpreting and using results to plan improvements and “Close the Loop” based on assessment data for each of PCC’s 5 Institution-level Student Learning Outcomes.
AQIP Action Project
As outlined in detail in our 2016 AQIP Action Project Update, PCC has made great strides in establishing a sustainable framework for institutional assessment of student learning, particularly in the following areas:
- Faculty Leadership
- Clarifying the Division of Responsibilities
- Inclusive Decision Making
- eLumen Implementation
- Faculty Training & Support
- Assessment Resources
- Transparent Communications
2017 HLC Showcase
As a testament to the many improvement efforts we have undertaken and accomplishments made in the past year, Pueblo Community College was selected as eLumen’s 2017 Institution Showcase and shared our assessment journey at the 2017 Higher Learning Commision National Conference in Chicago.
