2019-2020 CTE Expectations

CTE SACs will assess a portion of their degree and certificate outcomes every year as outlined on in their newly- customized Multi-Year PlanPlans, and will report summary data for thoseall assessments conducted. Then, each SAC will select one of the outcomes assessed in 2018-19 and provide a more detailed report of their process and findings on the CTE Annual Assess/Reassess Template (see form link above). forms to be linked above). The assessment phase is the initial assessment from which the SAC decides on appropriate responses to the findings; followed by...the reassessment phase, which is a a follow-up assessment that explores the effectiveness of the SAC's response to the initial assessment and, ideally, 'closes the loop.'

As always, Perkins-funded programs will continue to submit Technical Skill Attainment (TSA) results at year's end, too. For to IE and to Academic Affairs (and include TSA totals only--no student IDs--on the SDR). For more information on TSAs, go to: https://www.pcc.edu/resources/academic/TSA-TechnicalSkillAssessments.html

CTE Process

Overview

CTE SACs directly assess their Degree and Certificate Outcomes.

Like last year, CTE SACs will fill out or update their Multi-Year Plan (MYP) in the fall, submit a Summary Data Report (SDR) and Focal Outcome Report in the spring, and submit TSA results in July.

Summative Assessments and TSAs

CTE SACs are responsible for conducting summative assessments of all degrees and certificates within a three-year cycle (according to their Multi-Year Plan). Programs receiving federal Perkins funds also must conduct Technical Skill Attainment (TSA) assessments annually. The TSA reports must be filed with PCC's Institutional Effectiveness Office with a copy provided to Dr. Kendra Cawley in Academic Affairs each July.

Focal Assessments

Each year, SACs select one of the degree and certificate outcomes assessed that year as their 'focal outcome' and report to the LAC on the assessment process and the results. A focal assessment has two parts, which can be performed in separate calendar years:

      1. The assessment phase: An initial assessment from which the SAC decides on appropriate responses to the findings; followed by...
      2. The reassessment phase: A follow-up assessment that explores the effectiveness of the SAC's response to the initial assessment.

2019-2020 LDC-DE Expectations

LDC-DE SACs conduct and report on one assessment project. SACs are free to assess or reassess outcomes of their choosing. The LAC suggests that the SACs ought to focus on either course-level or program-level outcomes, and, when possible, to focus on highly-enrolled courses. To be clear, LDC SACs no longer have to assess the core outcomes.SACs are responsible for collecting student artifacts, norming the faculty evaluators, evaluating the artifacts, and, ultimately, analyzing the results of this year's assessment.

...

LDC-DE assessment planning and reporting happens in two phases. For first-time assessments, each SAC will complete the planning portion of the Assessment template in the fall and the end-of-year report (the latter portion of the template) in the spring. When conducting a follow-up assessment (assessing for improvement), SACs will fill out the Reassessment template--with the planning portion still due in the fall and the results portion due in the spring.

SACs are responsible for collecting student artifacts, norming the faculty evaluators, evaluating the artifacts, and, ultimately, analyzing the results of this year's assessment.

Due Dates for LDC_DE

Peer Review

At the end of each academic year, all completed assessment reports are reviewed by expert faculty peer reviewers, many of which are current members of the Learning Assessment Council. Over the summer the peer reviewers look at the plans, reports, summary data (where appropriate), and other documents submitted by their assigned SACs and critique them using a standard rubric. When the feedback forms have been completed, they are saved as PDFs and made available in September to the respective SACs. This feedback is available to SAC members in a different section of PCC's Spaces. Questions about peer review feedback? Contact Nora Stevens, LAC Chair, nora.stevens@pcc.edu. 

...

To secure compensation, SAC chairs must contact their SAC's administrative liaison with the G number of the faculty member(s) carrying out the work. SAC chairs are responsible for designating the number of hours to be compensated. If a SAC chair is unsure of who their dean liaison is, please contact Susan Wilson in Academic Affairs: swilson@pcc.edu or 971-722-4555. 

Assessment Coaching

The PCC Learning Assessment Council (LAC) provides free year-round assessment coaching to all SACs.
