Student Outcomes Assessment, 2000-01: A Progress Report to the Virginia Community College System.
Germanna Community Coll., Locust Grove, VA.
This report details the activities, findings, and actions that have made up Germanna Community College's (Virginia) student outcomes assessment program in specific reporting areas for 2000-2001. The following sections comprise the report: (1) an executive summary; (2) a report on assessment activities in five general education areas, including writing across the curriculum, technology (computer competency), oral communication, wellness, and a college-wide initiative called "Measuring the Integration of General Education Skills Across the Curriculum," (3) an update on the assessment undertaken by faculty members in five occupational programs, including associate degree programs in information systems technology, police science and nursing, and career studies certificates in legal assisting and early childhood development; (4) a report on the assessment of off-campus instruction; and (5) appendices that include the college's "Quality Assurance Plan for Asynchronous Distance Learning," and results of the initial efforts to implement that plan, as well as the college's academic program review cycle. Perhaps the most significant initiative was the establishment of a standing faculty Committee on Student Outcomes Assessment. This increased faculty participation in assessment activities bodes well for the future of outcomes assessment at the college. (AUTH/EMH)
