Student Learning Outcomes Assessment and Institutional Effectiveness Activities at Bellevue Community College. Report of the 1996-97 Assessment Inventory.
In response to recommendations from an accreditation visit regarding improvements in the utilization of research findings, Washington's Bellevue Community College (BCC) developed this assessment inventory to give faculty and staff a more complete understanding of student outcomes and assessment efforts at the college. Following an executive summary and introduction, a chart summarizing assessment activities conducted between 1992 and 1997 is presented, including information on participating groups, results, and project contacts. Next, results are provided from a study of all 380 faculty regarding assessment activities and methods. This section indicates that only 33 faculty responded and lists individual and departmental activities, assessment methods, faculty attendance at workshops, assessment-related resources, and professional development needs. The next section summarizes results from 71 interviews conducted with all division and program chairs and selected student services managers, highlighting key assessment-related issues facing BCC, training needs, and faculty use of the Small Group Instructional Diagnosis (SGID) technique. The final section presents a faculty and staff resource guide. Appendixes provide a list of interviewed staff, the survey instruments, information on the SGID, procedures for enrolling at BCC, sample student petitions, advising forms, student and graduate survey forms, a discussion of the use of technology in education, sample classroom checklists, and workshop evaluation forms.
