Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Report. Board of Trustees Report Submitted to the Maryland Higher Education Commission.
Clagett, Craig A.
This Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Report was intended to inform the Board of Trustees, the college community, and the public about the achievements of students enrolled in credit classes at Prince George's Community College (PGCC). Part I contains an executive summary and a discussion of the report's institutional impact. Part II includes common indicators of student learning outcomes, which consist of general education, student persistence, graduation rates, transfer to senior institutions, academic performance after transfer, licensure and certification examination results, graduate employment, graduate survey findings, and student evaluation of teaching. The report then discusses the institutional indicators of developmental education and course pass rates, concluding that though PGCC graduates recognize the value of their education, student persistence is quite low and transfer rates are declining. Course pass rates are high, yet the majority of students are deficient in at least one skill area. However, licensure rates and graduate employment remain high, as does the level of student satisfaction with the school and its teachers. Report findings have resulted in the appointment of a college-wide retention committee. (YKH)
