Academic Senate

Academic Assessment Committee

The Assessment Committee is a sub-committee of the Academic Senate.

Student Learning Assessment is a means of documenting student learning at Triton College that goes beyond course grades. The purpose of student learning assessment is to bring into sharper focus the accomplishments and/or weaknesses of each program or academic area. The information gathered will be used by faculty members to decide on maintenance or adjustment for their courses or program when deemed necessary. Student learning assessment will also allow the College to become more articulate in its communication efforts to its constituents.

Mission
Serve as resources to faculty and consulting body to the Office of Institutional Research in the development and engagement of academic assessment programs.
