Assessment Happens Fall 2018

Thursday, August 16, 2018
What is the Need/Assessment?: 

Event held at the beginning of each semester to bring all of the faculty and staff together to experience Assessment at EMCC and share out.

Describe the necessity for this change: 

The only change that was implemented for this presentation was the need to verbally share more information with everyone which did not allow for as much interaction or time to work on CATS.

Describe what will be (or was) implemented to affect change: 

The CATS of the Month winners shared their ideas and experiences with everyone, the Guided Pathways college representative shared the link between Guided Pathways, the changes being implemented in assessment of the General Education Abilities as well as HLC accreditation.

Interpret, compare and describe the results of the change: 

There was positive feedback from the faculty and staff.  Many had a better understanding of the connection to the district transformation, streamlining assessment at EMCC and HLC.  They also appreciated the opportunity to hear what the faculty and staff were doing to implement innovative assessment at EMCC.  Recommendations for changes was primarily focused on desiring more interaction and the feeling of information overload.  See attached file for more information.

After analyzing the information, what are the next steps?: 

This semester will see the roll out of the streamlined General Education Abilities, the New GenEd Volunteer Form and Rubrics, the New CATS Form, the New SLO's Form as well as the completion of the student learning outcomes for the top 20 courses as well as student services.
