Windward Community College A Review of Principles and Institutional Organization for Assessment
Windward Community CollegeAssessment Principles • Assessment is conducted with the student at the center of the process. • The assessment process reflects our commitment to student learning. • Assessment is designed to promote collegiality and conversation among and within units. • Each member of this institution has a professional responsibility to participate in the ongoing assessment process to ensure our mission statement is met. • Instructional Unit (Academic Department) assessment will be conducted by the unit; i.e., instructional units will spearhead the assessment of courses within their purview.
Windward Community CollegeAssessment Principles • Eventually all courses will be assessed for alignment to instructional unit outcomes. • All support units (non-instructional) will carry out the assessment process for their individual units. • Lecturers and new hires will be informed of the assessment process and their role in this process. • Personnel decisions will not be based on individual assessment data. • The IEC facilitates this assessment process in the institution and stores the assessment reports of the units/programs.

Instructional units (academic departments) will use a rubric to identify courses that align to departmental goals. Departmental goals may be revised if not related to student learning outcomes. Each course offered this semester will be included in the process. Departmental representatives on the IEC will support their departments’ activities. Upon completion of the alignment process, each department will complete a short summary of the results. Certificate programs will begin the assessment process. Units/programs that have not completed the process started in prior semesters will continue with assessment efforts. Aligning Student Learning Outcomes
