SAC's Assessment Matters Fall 2020

Submitted by Catherine Cochran on
What is the Purpose of the Assessment?

To create a culture of meaningful assessment and increase streamlined data collection processes. 

Describe the necessity for this assessment

All EMCC CLOs haven't been moved into Canvas.  There is a need for more CLO data collection. 

Describe how the practice will be implemented

Fall 2020 Assessment Matters, keynote speaker, Dr. Susan Hayfield, presented on meaningful assessment and creating CLOs.  Dr. Hayfield reviewed: What is meaningful assessment?, The steps and tools to build a course-level outcomes, and why meaningful assessment is important? 

Interpret, compare, and describe the results

Instructors who collect CLO participation has decreased from  50 instructors (Fall 2019) to 36 instructors (Fall 2020). CLO students assessed have increased from 68 (Fall 2019) to 1,081 (Fall 2020). 

After analyzing, and reflecting on the outcome, what are the next steps?
  1. We plan to have a keynote presentation at Assessment Matters Fall 2021.

  2. We want to continue the virtual modality, because it allowed for more participation and easier access.

  3. We will continue to measure faculty CLO data collection participation.



SAC Co-Coordinators wanted to create a culture of meaningful assessment at EMCC with our faculty and staff. The goals are to increase the number of courses to move their course-level learning outcomes(CLOs) into Canvas, increase more CLO data collection, and have a more streamlined data collection processes.
