In accordance with Monroe County Community College’s mission to provide student-focused, quality education, its core belief in transparent practices throughout all operations and programs, and its evidence-based culture, MCCC engages in student learning assessment.
Systematically assessing student learning enables the college to determine whether we are achieving our mission by producing skilled, thoughtful citizens, which, in turn, creates dialogue among faculty and shapes teaching practices.
General education – curriculum that prepares students to effectively communicate, think critically and be socially and culturally aware – assessment continues and program and course-level assessments are being developed to ensure that students possess expected competencies. The Learning Assessment Committee is responsible for leading assessment endeavors.
Guided by the college’s mission, vision and core values, the Monroe County Community College Institutional Research Office enhances institutional effectiveness through actions outlined in the following mission pillars:
- Assessing student learning and academic programs,
- Collecting, analyzing and reporting data to advance college priorities,
- Establishing key performance indicators for student and institutional success
- Reviewing scholarly research involving human subjects, and
- Strategic planning
- Serving as the College's Office of Record for Institutional and Specialized Accreditation and Higher Learning Commission Accreditation Liaison.

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.
