About Assessment at Colorado Mountain College
Assessment is an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving student learning
Teaching, learning, and assessment are part of an integrated, collaborative learning experience and follow a continuous cycle. It involves making our expectations explicit and public; setting appropriate criteria and high standards for learning quality; systematically gathering, analyzing, and interpreting evidence to determine how well performance matches expectations and standards; and using the resulting information to document, explain, and improve performance.
When it is embedded effectively within larger institutional systems, assessment can help us focus our collective attention, examine our assumptions, and create a shared academic culture dedicated to assuring and improving the quality of higher education.
The overarching goals of CMC’s assessment program are:
