Assessment at Bronx Community College
Welcome! The Office of Assessment offers a variety of ways to assist in the assessments of courses and programs. We are committed to making outcomes assessment an enlightening process that reveals how well students are performing in classes and programs in the important areas of BCC’s General Education proficiencies: Communication, Mathematical Methods, Research & Analysis, Informational Literacy, the Scientific Method, Personal growth & Professional Development, Global Awareness. The information gleaned from performing outcomes assessment reveals specific student performance in mastering these proficiencies.
The assessment manager and team faculty members are ready and available to present to departments or programs on matters ranging from writing measurable program outcomes to rubric construction, from deciding on an assessment vehicle to interpreting the data garnered. Individual meetings and consultations are also available and can often present a turning point in understanding the critical role of assessment in effective teaching and learning.
