Assessment Committee

The Moreno Valley Assessment Committee is a standing committee of the Academic Senate. Moreno Valley College embraces the principle that effective and meaningful assessment is an integral part of the educational process. This principle is at the heart of our commitment to meet our responsibilities to our students, profession, and the communities that we serve. Embracing multiple and diverse voices in the assessment process enhances the collaborative spirit we consider essential for our mission driven work.

An assessment system documents progress toward our goals and provides the raw material for data-driven improvement. Strategic and systematic institutional assessment supports the mission of the College by assuring that our programs are of the highest quality, and that we are effectively preparing our students to succeed in their chosen profession and contribute meaningfully to the common good.

Assessment Projects

Assessment reports are submitted via Nuventive Solutions, a flexible software system that has an intuitive web-based interface that makes it easier for faculty and for staff to collaborate on planning and reporting assessment activities. An Assessment Report should be submitted or renewed every year by September 15 for courses offered in the spring and summer, or by February 28 for courses offered in the fall and winter.

Submit your project with Nuventive

Course SLOs

All course SLOs should be assessed during your comprehensive program review cycle. If a course is offered at least once per year, at least one SLO should be assessed annually. If a course is offered less frequently, at least one SLO should be assessed every time the course is offered.

Coaching Session

This semester we are offering one-on-one Assessment Coaching Sessions. Please contact the Assessment Committee's faculty co-chair to schedule a coaching session or with any questions. Be sure to bring your completed Assessment Template document, as the coaching sessions are intended to be hands-on.

General Education and Institutional Learning Outcomes

General education prepares students to be able to demonstrate an understanding of how knowledge is discovered and constructed in the natural sciences, the social and behavioral sciences, the humanities, and language and rationality. Students will understand the methods of inquiry that underlie the search for knowledge in these fields. In addition, students will gain demonstrable skills in four broad interdisciplinary areas.

The General Education Student Learning Outcomes were approved by the Board of Trustees on September 18, 2012

Students will be able to explore problems and, where possible, solve them. Students will be able to develop, test, and evaluate rival hypotheses. Students will be able to construct sound arguments and evaluate the arguments of others.

Information Competency and Technology Literacy

Students will be able to use technology to locate, organize, and evaluate information. They will be able to locate relevant information, judge the reliability of sources, and evaluate the evidence contained in those sources as they construct arguments, make decisions, and solve problems.

Communication

Students will be able to communicate effectively in diverse situations. Be able to create, express and interpret meaning in oral, visual and written forms. Will also be able to demonstrate quantitative literacy and the ability to use graphical, symbolic and numerical methods to analyze, organize, and interpret data.
