Outcomes Assessment is an ongoing, cyclical process by which the institution, its degree and certificate programs, and its units – both academic and non-academic – gather, analyze and use data to determine how well they are accomplishing their mission and goals and to make continuous improvements based on assessment results.

Each academic program and non-academic unit at FSCJ identifies goals and expected outcomes consistent with the mission of the College. Faculty and staff develop and use assessment tools to measure and analyze the degree of their area’s performance and levels of success in achieving their goals. Ultimately, the purpose of assessment is to make improvements based upon the collected data.

The College has authorized APM 02-1601 to provide guidance on compliance with the institutional effectiveness process.
