Assessment at West Virginia Northern Community College

West Virginia Northern has a long history and culture of assessment.  Efforts started in the early 90's with academic course assessment.  Courses were assessed on a rotating basis.  Once established, the Assessment committee began peer reviews of course assessment reports.  Later developments included academic program assessment and then peer reviews.  Most recently, staff unit assessment reports (by department) have been implemented.  These are also peer reviewed.  A Guide for Assessment can be found here.

Reports and peer reviews from 2008 to 2012 are available in the Faculty Document Center.  Older reports and peer reviews are available here:
