Wor-Wic Community College has been conducting the full cycle of assessment since
2005 to measure both learning and institutional effectiveness at the institution,
academic program, service department, and course levels. Assessment serves a valuable
role in measuring the extent to which Wor-Wic Community College is fulfilling its
mission. In addition the assessment process serves as a tool to improve student
learning and college operations and services. The assessment effort is guided by
dedicated faculty and staff who serve on two committees: the Assessment Committee
and the General Education Assessment Committee. The assessment process at Wor-Wic
also ensures the college is continuing to help its students reach their academic,
personal and professional goals and serving the needs of the local community.
Student Learning Outcomes for Wor-Wic Community College
General Education Assessment Results
Wor-Wic Community College assesses all* prospective associate degree-seeking students on their general
education competencies once they have completed 45 credit hours toward their degree requirements. The
general education competencies are measured by the standardized, nationally normed assessments. One to
two competencies are assessed annually. Wor-Wic's results are compared to the national norm for similar
type institutions. In addition to standardized instruments, the college uses various course-embedded
assessments and surveys its current students, graduates and local employers to assess general education skills.
*Students who have earned a prior higher education degree (from Wor-Wic or another institution) or from reverse
transfer are exempt from the general education assessment.
