Student Learning Assessment
The purpose of student learning assessment is to identify, collect, and prepare data to evaluate and continuously improve attainment of student learning outcomes. Effective assessment uses relevant direct, and indirect, qualitative and qualitative measures as appropriate to the outcome being measured.
The Student Learning Assessment Committee is responsible for reviewing, revising, and approving the Academic Assessment Plan for Northwest Arkansas Community College. The CAO has appointed the Assessment Committee to monitor academic assessment planning to make recommendations to the CAO regarding, general education and course level assessment plans, processes, and reports. The AC also conveys assessment results to CAO bi-annually for consideration and follow-up and works in conjunction with the office of institutional effectiveness and institutional research for formal reporting that is required for various constituents.
