Assessment and Planning for Instructional Programs and Services (APPS) Guidelines. Revised.
West Valley Coll., Saratoga, CA.
The Assessment and Planning for Programs and Services (APPS) process at West Valley College (WVC) (California) is intended to improve the success of students by ensuring that they have access to the highest quality instruction and support services. APPS requires that programs and services submit a full report every 4 years, with annual updates. The full report consists of a student survey, other pertinent data, and a self study. This booklet serves as a guide to APPS and contains a process overview and a schedule and timeline for the various steps of the full report, which include: (1) orientation; (2) student survey (a sample of which is provided); (3) analysis of data on loads, enrollments, student characteristics, grades, and completions; (4) self study, which includes the program overview, data analysis, and goals; and (5) preparing the final report; (6) evaluation; and (7) presentation to the board. The annual update has six steps that are briefly outlined in this guide: (1) analyzing the data; (2) establishing goals and activities; (3) requesting resources; (4) prioritizing requests-division level; (5) prioritizing requests-college level; and (6) developing the budget. Appended are a glossary of terms, interpretation guide, and information on community college and district guidelines, goals, and priorities. (EMH)
