Student Learning Assessment Steering Committee


The assessment program at Central Ohio Technical College supports the institution’s mission. The college believes that effective assessment is best understood as a strategy for understanding, confirming, and improving student learning. Assessment is the development, collection and analysis of student learning measurements.

Central Ohio Technical College and faculty are continuously engaged in measuring student learning outcomes and program effectiveness to improve the quality of education provided for students. Assessment findings are reported both internally and externally, including external agencies which accredit various programs of study.
