It is mandated by ACCJC, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges, that institutions engage in assessment, evaluation and reflection. Additionally, ACCJC states that institutions must systematically and regularly evaluate how well and in what ways it is accomplishing its purposes, including assessment of student learning. Faculty are responsible for assessing their courses (SLOs)* and programs (PLOs)* (ILOs on the other hand are mapped to SLOs and PLOs in Nuventive Improve (formerly TracDat) and are assessed through other means via the College). Faculty may be asked to participate in assessing ILOs.

*NOTE: For the 2020-2023 assessment cycle, "Full-time faculty members will not be expected to engage in more than two high-volume or high-demand professional duties during [Fall 2020, Spring 2021,Fall 2021 and Spring 2022]. High-volume or high-demand duties are any of the following:

  • Service on a committee (each committee counts as one high-volume duty)
  • Program review
  • Curriculum development (except for DE addenda)
  • SLO’s"
