22. Student Achievement
Student achievement of learning outcomes is measured in numerous ways, from course
grading and technical skills assessment to job placement and employer feedback surveys.
Student learning outcomes for each program are published in the catalog and on all
brochures pertaining to programs. Program level outcomes are reviewed and regularly
assessed by the division in consultation with program advisory committees. Instructors
assess course level outcomes at the end of each semester and new goals are set based on
23. Institutional Effectiveness
EITC uses a systematic evaluation and planning process to achieve its mission and to
improve effectiveness on campus. There are several procedures in place to help target
areas of concern and quickly find ways to change or improve processes. These include the
Noel-Levitz survey, which is given to both students, faculty, and staff annually during the fall
semester. It identifies areas of satisfaction as well as unsatisfactory perceptions. Positive
actions are then implemented to address any areas of concern.
Three types of evaluation are used for faculty. Faculty are evaluated by students,
supervisors and by peer evaluators. They are selected by supervisors for semester
evaluations and the peer evaluation is done on a rotating basis. Supervisors conduct
evaluations with faculty yearly during spring semester. Necessary changes are identified
and additional training conducted, based on findings.
Industry-specific Advisory Council Meetings are held each year for every credit program on
campus. These meetings promote good communication and often result in program
improvements or changes to better meet industry requirements and standards.
