Strengthening Assessment: A College-wide Endeavor

At Northern, we approach assessment as a campus-wide need.  The Action Project: Strengthening Assessment is managed by the leadership of the Committee for Learning Assessment of Students (CLASS). To make data-driven decisions assessment data is analyzed by the General Education Committee (GEC), Undergraduate Curriculum Committee, and the Provost’s Academic Chairs/Deans and Directors Committee. Northern follows the New Mexico Higher Education Department (HED) Core Competencies (Common Core Standards) in establishing general education student learning outcomes.

College-wide Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) incorporated into instruction across all disciplines are: Communication, Critical Thinking, Cultural Competence, and Information Competency & Research. By utilizing these SLOs within the master syllabi, Northern seeks to have each graduate leave with the qualities of both a lifelong learner and an accomplished student in the graduate's chosen discipline.
