Assessment at Coconino Community College
Coconino Community College is committed to providing teaching and learning excellence in all its endeavors through a comprehensive assessment program that includes:
Assessment of Student Learning
This form of assessment involves identifying how competently students have attained learning outcomes in both general education and the major. Each curricular area at the College has articulated the learning outcomes expected of students completing each degree or certificate and the level of student performance expected. Students participate through examinations, portfolios, performance assessments, surveys, and related activities. The emphasis in these areas is directly focused on what a student has learned as a result of their educational experience at CCC. Data collected are used to both document and improve student learning.
Faculty, staff, and students share responsibility to assist with assessment efforts. As well, community members at large are asked to participate in our quality assurance program. In all instances assessment activities stem directly from the institution’s mission and purposes. Results are tied to the College’s strategic plan and used to improve student learning. Participation in these activities is appreciated and valued by members of the College community as CCC strives to achieve its vision of "leading our communities in life-long learning."
