Program Assessment & Accreditation

We conduct continuous and comprehensive assessment of our programs to:
create opportunities for the academic community to carefully consider learning objectives and create learning goals that align with overall campus priorities, industry needs, and societal objectives, measure and enhance student learning, provide students with information about the knowledge, skills, and abilities they can expect to develop through successful completion of coursework and academic programs, and ensure accountability and provide evidence of student achievement to accreditation bodies, legislators, and other stakeholders.

Campus-Level Assessment

Regular Academic Program Reviews are conducted for all CSU, Chico academic programs, including those offered by the College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Construction Management (ECC). Campus level assessment is coordinated by the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) through the Office of the Vice Provost of Planning, Resource Allocation, and Evaluation. Online program portfolios for each of the ECC programs.

College-Level Assessment

The assessment process includes development of educational objectives and desired student learning outcomes, collection of student data and work samples, preparation of detailed assessment documents, evaluations by external reviewers, and a feedback loop that produces continuous improvement.
