 Moreno Valley Assessment Committee Mission

Moreno Valley College embraces the principle that effective and meaningful assessment is an integral part of the educational process. This principle is at the heart of our commitment to meet our responsibilities to our students, profession, and the communities that we serve. Embracing multiple and diverse voices in the assessment process enhances the collaborative spirit we consider essential for our mission driven work. An assessment system documents progress toward our goals and provides the raw material for data-driven improvement. Strategic and systematic institutional assessment supports the mission of the College by assuring that our programs are of the highest quality, and that we are effectively preparing our students to succeed in their chosen profession and contribute meaningfully to the common good. The Moreno Valley Assessment Committee is a standing committee of the Academic Senate.

Assessment Projects:  Please submit your Assessment Projects using TracDat:
 
 
 
As you may know, all assessment reports are now submitted via TracDat®, a flexible software system that has an intuitive web-based interface that makes it easier for faculty and for staff to collaborate on planning and reporting assessment activities.  An Assessment Report should be submitted or renewed every year by September 15 for courses offered in the spring and summer, or by February 28 for courses offered in the fall and winter. 

All course SLOs should be assessed during your comprehensive program review cycle.  If a course is offered at least once per year, at least one SLO should be assessed annually.  If a course is offered less frequently, at least one SLO should be assessed every time the course is offered.

This semester we are offering one-on-one Assessment Coaching Sessions.  Please contact Cheryl Honore’ to schedule a coaching session or with any questions.  Be sure to bring your completed Assessment Template document, as the coaching sessions are intended to be hands-on.
