MSCC is committed to quality evaluation of student learning and institutional effectiveness. The following principles guide institutional improvement:
Academic assessment efforts focus the College on improving student learning and goal achievement which will result in higher quality instruction, curriculum, and support services.
Institutional effectiveness procedures involve all areas of the College and seek input from all constituencies in the identification or development of measurement tools and use of the data collected.
Evaluation procedures are designed, with careful consideration before implementation, to be flexible and accommodating as well as open to rethinking and refinement.
Evaluation efforts are based upon data collection and analyses to inform institutional planning and budgeting and help the College accomplish its mission and purposes.
