Saint Louis Community College Annual Assessment Report, 2000-2001.
Saint Louis Community Coll., MO.
This document chronicles the assessment activities at St. Louis Community College (SLCC), Missouri, that were part of a 5-year plan adopted in 1999. The plan was a response to the North Central Association's (NCA) recommendation that SLCC receive 10 years of accreditation as a single institution (until the 2007-2008 school year), contingent upon a successful Focused Visit. The visit would review three areas of concern: (1) district governance and leadership, (2) Human Resources, and (3) assessment. Section 1, "NCA Focused Visit: Process & Product," describes the history of SLCC's involvement with the assessment process. Section 2, "Assessment of Academic Programs," explains that assessment of more popular courses serves the dual purpose of providing a required assessment for both an academic course and an academic program, since these courses are often the staple offerings of their departments. Almost 90% of academic departments at SLCC were actively engaged in course assessment throughout the 2000-2001 academic year. More than 87% of transfer students surveyed said if they had it to do again, they would still begin their education at SLCC. Section 3, "Assessment of Career Programs," reports that 71% of 2000 career graduates were employed in a related field within 180 days of graduation. Other sections include "College Services,""Closing the Loop," and "Shifting the Culture." (NB)
