A Faculty Report on Assessment of General Education at Coconino Community College, 2000-2001.
This report details the development of a student outcomes assessment of general education by faculty members at Coconino Community College (CCC) (Arizona). This assessment project consisted of three major components: (1) The General Education Assessment Pilot Project (Faculty members dedicated a semester to measuring student achievement of course outcomes and explored cost-effective and meaningful methods for reporting and documenting student academic achievement--the primary focus was to look for commonality in course-level assessment of student outcomes); (2) Writing Student Outcomes for the General Education Core Curriculum, wherein a group of faculty and administrators worked carefully to link student outcomes to the college mission, purpose statement, and general education values and criteria; and (3) The Teaching and Learning Conference, for which a two-day conference was organized to provide professional development opportunities to faculty and staff. The conference included work sessions focused on assessment techniques and writing outcomes, as well as other training opportunities for improving teaching and learning. Information about these three components of the assessment project, as well as a compilation of the results of four semesters of general education assessment (fall 1999 to spring 2001), are reported in chronological order in this report. (Includes 11 addendum exhibits.) (KP)
