The College Assessment Plan (CAP), is a broad effort to coordinate new and existing assessment practices in support of student and institutional learning and success, and will be fully operational in 2014-15. The CAP is overseen by the Assessment Committee of the Academic Assembly. See Timeline. [PDF]
Annual Programatic Assessment is the systematic collection, review and use of information about educational programs to improve student learning. Assessment focuses on what students know, what they are able to do, and what values they have when they graduate. Assessment is concerned with the collective impact of a program on student learning.
Through annual educational assessments, Otis College is committed to student learning and success, and continuous improvement of curricular and co-curricular programs. Each Department maintains an assessment portfolio with data that reflects how well students are learning. When necessary, changes are made.
The three major elements of the CAP are:
Program Review is an opportunity for each Otis College Department to invite colleagues from peer institutions with relevant professional experiences to review and assess the performance and operations of the academic program. Program Reviews are completed every 6 years and serve as an important component in the Otis College’s commitment to sustaining a culture of evidence and seeking continuously to improve.
