NNMC is creating a culture of college-wide assessment where student learning outcomes are taught and assessed in all academic programs and across all disciplines.
The Committee for Learning Assessment of Students (CLAS) leads this college wide initiative with representation from all Colleges and Academic Departments who meet regularly. The committee shares data with Deans/Chairs/Directors/Faculty for the purpose of continuous curriculum improvement and implementation.
The college-wide student learning outcomes (CSLOs) are Communication, Critical Thinking, Cultural Sustainability, and Information Competency & Research. Faculty incorporate the CSLOs within their syllabi and they collect data using college-wide rubrics. Data is then compiled by the Office of Institutional Research and is shared with internal stakeholders. Leadership along with faculty will analyze, reflect, and identify next steps in making improvements to the curriculum by following the assessment cycle and processes.
