Assessment of Student Learning

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 strives to capture assessment data to meaningfully safeguard evidence that student develop meaningful skills, as determined by institutional learning objectives.
