一般 education assessment at 十大网赌软件推荐 strives to improve what the college cares about most: student 学习. 十大网赌软件推荐’s commitment to student 学习 is expressed in the college goal “To ensure that teaching and 学习 remain the institution's focus.” To aid in achieving their college goal of student 学习, New River Community College has established a six-year general education assessment reporting plan that is in accordance with a policy established by the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) and complies with the Virginia Community College System (VCCS) Policy Manual, including Section 5 (Educational Programs). Provided is an excerpt regarding 一般 Education (第五节.0.2.0) and the Core Competencies set by VCCS:
126.96.36.199 Associate degree programs provide a coherent, shared experience for students to develop the general education core competencies expected of them as college-educated individuals. 一般 education, as an integrated and cohesive whole, provides the educational foundation necessary to promote intellectual and personal development. Upon completion of the associate degree, graduates of Virginia's Community Colleges will demonstrate competency in student 学习 outcomes (SLOs) determined and assessed by each college in 1) civic engagement, 2) critical thinking, 3) professional readiness, 4) quantitative literacy, 5) scientific literacy, and 6) written 沟通.
Collectively, these general education core competencies distinguish graduates of Virginia's Community Colleges as individuals with a breadth of knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to pursue further education and their careers, continue to develop as learners, and contribute to the well-being of their communities. The six competencies are defined in policy with aspirational statements of 学习 goals for graduates. Each community college will determine and assess specific 学习 outcomes based on the definitions and aspirational statements.
Student achievement in these six core competencies is updated here annually, as that data is collected.
