Eastern Wyoming College’s assessment program is a learning circuit (measuring student learning). Success under this approach documents achievement of identified goals for learning and student success outcomes. Assessment activities are designed to measure such achievement. Assessment activities are conducted, results are reviewed and disseminated, and changes made in the classrooms, programs, the strategic planning and budgeting process, and in the overall college based on these assessment results.
The Assessment Cycle is a continuous process of analysis of mission, development of goals and objectives, identification of measures of learning outcomes, assessing, collecting and interpreting data, disseminating useful information, proposing changes, and instituting, monitoring, and evaluating those changes.
