Overview of Assessment Reporting
Note: This page is under construction and its appearance may change as we play around with different formats. If any of the links become problematic, SACs may contact their coaches to get copies of the templates and help guides.
Assessment Reporting Templates and Resources, or links to them, are found on this page. Assessment is an ongoing activity where SACs submit yearly reports. Please read General Information for 2013-2014 which appears directly below. Scroll down for links specific to CTE and LDC.
General Information for 2013-2014:
- Different Reporting Structure: Annual assessment reporting has been broken up into two parts: Annual Plan and Year-End Report. Deadlines for each are given below.
- Multi-Year Plan: Periodically Subject Area Committees (SACs) also submit a Multi-Year Plan. This is due this year.
- Opt-in to New Template Format: SACs can choose to opt-in to the new template structure (called Option 1). We hope that most SACs will choose Option 1 and provide feedback on the new templates. However, for this year, SACs may choose to use the templates that are similar to last year's reporting form (called Option 2). The same option should be chosen for both the Annual Plan and the Year-End Report.

Career Technical Education (CTE) Programs
- CTE SACs directly assess their degree and certificate outcomes. Since the degree and certificate outcomes have been mapped to the institutional outcomes, the Core Outcomes are indirectly assessed.
- Since CTE SACs are responsible for their own degree/certificates, assessment of all their degree/certificate outcomes should occur within a two-year cycle. If your SAC has several degrees/certificates with unrelated outcomes, please contact your coach to discuss the possibility of a longer cycle.

Lower Division Collegiate (LDC, or Transfer) and Developmental Education (DE) Disciplines
- LDC SACs have a collective responsibility to ensure students are attaining the outcomes of the transfer and general education degrees (AS, ASOT/B, AAOT, and AGS). The institutional, or Core Outcomes, are the basis of these degrees.
- LDC SACs should assess at least four of the six Core Outcomes robustly on a cycle of at least two per year. Ideally, LDC SACs assess all six Core Outcomes.
