CTE - Assessment Workbook

This guide provides information, resources, and templates for assessing student learning outcomes at Central Penn College.


The results of an assessment should be shared with the College community for the purposes of continuous improvement and information transparency.  To ensure that the College community is informed, use the following process:



The program or committee chair will be responsible for communicating the results of assessment to various stakeholders.  Communicating the results of assessment is integral to a culture of assessment. 

These stakeholders include:

  • Department members (full-time, part-time, administration)
  • Academic Administrators (deans, provost)
  • Non-academic Administrators (cabinet members, president, board members)
  • Assessment Committee of Faculty Senate and Faculty Senate
  • Center for Teaching Excellence
  • Students


Methods of Communication

There are a variety of ways to communicate assessment results beyond the formal report the faculty members will produce.  These include:

  • Town hall meetings
  • Focus groups
  • Presentations
  • Website announcements
  • Blogs
  • Email
  • Department meetings



When communicating to these various stakeholders, it is important to

  • Document discussions and outreach
  • Seek feedback on recommendations

All programmatic reports should be sent to the Dean of the School. The Dean will submit a School report to the  Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs / Provost who will post the reports on the shared drive.
