Assessment Activities at CSS:

By September 1, 2016, the College must submit a report to the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) that addresses Assessment of Student Learning concerns, specifically in the areas of general education and extended studies. CSS must demonstrate that assessment of student learning is:

  1. an institutional priority,
  2. tied to the budgeting and planning processes,
  3. able to addresses identified weaknesses, and
  4. sustainable
