Monroe County Community College faculty devised a detailed plan to guide instructional assessment at the general education, program, course and classroom levels. This plan is reviewed with each assessment cycle.

Monroe County Community College Instructional Assessment Plan

Program-level assessment encompasses degree programs within each of the divisions. In this form of assessment, the faculty with the division dean will gather and analyze the aggregate data of the required core courses within a program. 

Effective program-level assessments are affected by the division mission statement, program mission statement, and the culmination of course-level student-learning outcomes. They are ongoing and build a body of evidence for program improvement and program development. 

Program-level assessment is a systematic way of monitoring whether students have actually acquired the skills, knowledge and competencies intended by their program of study. The main purpose of the program assessment process is to evaluate how well intended program level student learning outcomes were achieved and develop strategies for improvement.
