Assessment Office

PROGRESS ON ANNUAL ACADEMIC DEPARTMENT GOALS AND STRATEGIES IDENTIFIED IN THE ANNUAL DEPARTMENT INSTITUTIONAL EFFECTIVENSS PLAN (IEP).

The College’s institutional effectiveness plan is an OLC wide process of planning and outcomes assessment for the purpose of documenting that the college is achieving its mission and goals, and based on assessment data, continuously improving operations, programs and services (OLC IEP, 2013). The IEP helps to ensure compliance with Criterion 4 and 5 of the Higher Learning Commission.

The purpose of this section of the Academic Department Report is to demonstrate how each academic department closes the loop on assessment. An IEP is created at the beginning of each academic year, using the student learning assessment results from the prior year. The IEP has two parts, the first part is the Annual Action Plan for Student Learning Outcomes and the second part is the Annual Action Plan.
