Assessment Policy

Approved by the Board of Trustees of Rockland Community College on February 26, 2024.

The Institutional Assessment Committee represents each of the College Divisions (as defined by the RCC Organizational Chart) in the development and maintenance of standardized assessment guidelines for the College. Assessment standards will include the following components.

  • Conducted by all units of the College;
  • Conducted regularly (e.g. annual reports and periodic reviews);
  • Consistent (planned, orderly, organized, and methodical);
  • Internally and/or externally reviewed according to standardized plans;
  • Accountable to each other and our constituents;
  • Publicly shared.

An Assessment Manual of Procedures will be developed and maintained by the Institutional Assessment Committee. It will serve as a guide for organizational divisions and departments of the College to design, implement, analyze, and share assessments for their Divisions, Departments, Programs, and/or Initiatives.
