Student Academic Achievement Plan: An Assessment Plan and Program. Revised.
Front Range Community Coll., Westminster, CO.
This report describes student academic achievement assessment activities at Front Range Community College (FRCC) (Colorado). According to this plan, all major decisions within the college will be based on four strategic initiatives: quality of student experience; excellence of human resources; college flexibility and responsibility; and cutting-edge technology. For assessment purposes, FRCC identified 47 academic instructional program areas that offer certificates, degrees, transfer courses, development courses, student services, community and professional development courses, and college-wide general education. These program areas and the goals associated with each are delineated as follows: (1) career/technical education: meeting the occupational goals of youth and adults in technical and vocational careers; (2) transfer education: providing students with the academic background for successful performance at a four-year college or university; (3) basic skills education: enabling students to acquire or improve basic skills necessary to succeed in the college-level courses required for certificate or degree programs; (4) student services: facilitating student progress and success; (5) continuing education and customized training: supporting lifelong learning needs of area residents and workforce development needs of area employers; and (6) general education: providing academic and personal competencies expected of all community college graduates. The assessment techniques and methods to be used to measure the extent to which these program goals are being met are described. (JA)
