Process for evaluating program effectiveness

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.
