Program Assessment Planning

At NTCC, student achievement of learning outcomes is a key component of institutional effectiveness. Since fall 2014, educational programs at NTCC have developed student learning outcomes focused on programs that lead to improvement in student learning and operational efficiencies. Through the Program Assessment Planning process, each program of study develops and assesses outcomes and uses the results for improvements. The educational programs across all college locations engage in this systematic planning and evaluation process in order to promote institutional performance and accountability for continuous improvement toward the advancement and the fulfillment of the identified program-level student learning outcomes. Therefore, each planning unit sets its priorities for the year based on their core areas of responsibility and institutional priorities; then defines assessment measures and performance targets, and analyzes the results, which they use for the continuous improvement of their programs.

Institutional Effectiveness

The Program Assessment Planning process is outlined in the NTCC Institutional Effectiveness Plan and is updated in the annual Institutional Effectiveness Report. To review the plan and report, visit the link below:
