To document the process NTCC employs to assess student achievement, an overview of key metrics of achievement will be reviewed, followed by an overview of key plans and reports which provide evaluative data.

The minimum level of achievement is determined based on the incremental annual achievement level necessary to reach the goal by the end of the College Strategic Planning period. The goal level is the ultimate goal established in alignment with the College Strategic Plan.
