Academic Assessment


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Handbook Policies and Procedures

North Arkansas College maintains a procedure to assess student learning and educational outcomes which is led by the Academic Assessment team. Assessment is essential to continuous improvement, and therefore a commitment to assessment is deeply embedded into the learning process and College activities. Assessment applies not only to student learning and educational outcomes but to the College’s approach to improvement of institutional effectiveness.

For student learning, Northark is committed to assessment at the general, program and co-curricular level that proceeds from measurable goals, involves faculty at all points in the process, and analyzes the assessment results.  The College improves its academic programs or ancillary services or other operations on the basis of those analyses. North Arkansas College reviews programs regularly and seeks external judgment, and benchmarks assessments.  North Arkansas College directs attention to persistence, retention, and completion indicators of quality and foci for improvement.
