Assessment of student learning (aka "learning assessment") is a crucial piece of what PCC submits  to its accrediting agency, the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) To remain compliant with accreditation standards, we must:               

  • be engaged in learning assessment in some creative way
  • be able to show  we are using what we learn to make  adjustments and improvements 

Beyond these important requirements, however, is the institutional desire to demonstrate our students are in fact learning what  we say they are learning, and to make improvements where we find      improvements need to be made. These two motives can be synergistic rather than mutually exclusive.

The Learning Assessment Council (LAC) is a faculty body with administrative support that leads the assessment efforts at PCC. See the sidebar for links to the myriad of assessment resources for faculty.

For information about PCC's assessment process, see Overview of Assessment Reporting.

For current-year templates, see: CTE Programs or LDC/DE Disciplines sub pages.
