The Assessment Council

October 4, 2004 - meeting also referred to Assessment Policy and Accreditation Criteria from HLC (p. 5)

The Assessment Council carries out the mandate for assessment of student learning as stated in the campus Assessment Policy, creating guidelines for reporting assessment activities and reviewing assessment plans and reports submitted by the units. The members coordinate and facilitate the assessment activities of the units they represent. They advise the Assistant Vice-Chancellor on matters pertaining to program assessment of student learning, and act as liaisons between the Assistant Vice-Chancellor and their respective units. They work within the guidelines established in the Assessment Policy.

Reporting lines:

The Assessment Council is an Academic Affairs committee. The chair of the Council, the Assistant Vice-Chancellor, reports on Council activities to the Vice-Chancellor for Academic Affairs. Members of the Council are charged with carrying information about Council activities back to faculty and/or staff in their respective units.

The Chair of the Assessment Council sends a yearly report on assessment activities to the Chair of the Faculty Senate Assessment Committee. 

Meeting schedule:

The Council generally meets twice during the fall semester and once during the spring. Subcommittees of the Council meet once a year to review assessment plans and/or reports from the various units.
