Program/Degree Assessment

In 2014 TMCC undertook the task to re-imagine the assessment process across the institution.  The Student Learning Committee (SLC) was formed and populated with a mix of faculty, administrative, and staff representation.  With participation from around the institution the SLC committee redesigned the assessment process away from the course-based subjective reporting that existed before to a data driven program-level assessment process.

TMCC’s assessment process is centered around the Annual Assessment Form.  This form is used to assess all academic programs, general education outcomes, and co-curricular units.  The Assessment Cycle at TMCC is as follows:

  •  August/September

Annual Assessment Kick-Off meeting

  • October 1st

All programs submit their initial assessment plan to the SLC for approval

  • May

All programs present their completed assessment plans to the SLC committee for review
