Institutional Effectiveness Plan: Assessing Effectiveness To Improve Service and Increase Accountability.
Quinley, John W.; And Others
This institutional effectiveness plan for Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) is designed to serve as the blueprint by which assessment activities are undertaken and results disseminated throughout the college. First, Chapter One provides an overview of CPCC's self-study planning process, indicating that a 33-member task force comprised of faculty and staff was established to document educational and administrative outcomes. Chapter 2 presents the text of CPCC's revised mission statement. Next, chapters 3 through 11 examine the college's functional mission areas, including: (1) career education; (2) college transfer education; (3) basic skills education; (4) continuing education; (5) community service; (6) student development; (7) instructional support in terms of instructional development and innovation; (8) instructional support provided by the learning resources center; and (9) administrative support. Each of these chapters contains a restatement of the relevant section of the college mission statement; a vision for the future direction of the mission area; a description of the principal client groups served; a list of core assessment questions; a description of programs and departments; and a listing of assessment activities and indicators. The activities and indicators section is further divided into institutional/departmental records and studies to be conducted. Finally, chapter 12 explores institutional values. Appendixes provide flow charts of CPCC's administrative structure; a review of state and regional assessment requirements; a detailed description of CPCC's varied client groups; and a brief description of different assessment studies and reports undertaken at the college.
