Summary

This booklet opens with a list of the features that society now demands from higher education and then describes approaches to assessing the community college mission. Twenty-first century expectations for higher education are being shaped by: (1) a change in focus from teaching to learning; (2) the need to base credentials on demonstrated competence; (3) a demonstration of the value added by higher education; (4) the need to deliver workforce training; (5) the use of technology in instruction; (6) the needs of the community; and (7) the effectiveness of strategic alliances. The author addresses assessment in connection with four aspects of the community college mission: general education, career and occupational education, continuing education, and transfer to four-year institutions Also explored are processes for assessing institutional effectiveness, uses of assessment findings, and principles for successful assessment. Through analysis of assessment efforts in the community college setting, faculty and administrators at both two- and four-year institutions may find successful models for improving the assessment of student learning as well as curricula, instruction, and support services. (Contains 23 references.) (VWC)
