Outcomes Assessment

Welcome to the Outcomes Assessment Website!
Whether you are faculty, staff, students, or just curious about assessment, we hope that you will find our assessment resources to be valuable.

Our Philosophy
At Long Beach City College, our assessment philosophy embraces the notion that the entire campus contributes to students’ mastery of institutional outcomes and learning outcomes in every course, degree, certificate, and educational pathway. Our faculty and staff recognize that student learning requires more than mere memorization of information and they work hard to ensure that students utilize their command of this information to solve problems, demonstrate skills, and think critically about what they have learned.

Faculty and staff at Long Beach City College are committed to thinking critically about how students learn and how each component of the college influences the learning process and subsequently, student success. Our outcomes assessment process stimulates discussion among faculty members and directs activities that can improve instructional delivery and support systems.

The Principles of Assessment
Adopted by the Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes Subcommittee October 25, 2016.

These principles act as the guiding philosophy for outcomes assessment across campus and align with the Long Beach City College Strategic Plan. Outcomes assessment is a faculty-driven process. It is Purposeful, Focused, and Nurturing. It respects and builds on the contributions of all campus stakeholders to support students.

  • Purposeful: Assessment should be conducted to enhance student success.
    • Ensure students are learning by actively reviewing the strength of outcomes and the viability of assessment methods.
    • Help students achieve success by using assessment data to refine and share best teaching practices within departments and disciplines.
  • Focused: Focus institutional resources on the structures, processes, and practices that support transformation.
    • Align outcomes and assessment procedures with curriculum processes.
    • Address college and accreditation standards with efficient assessment.
    • Use assessment data to directly inform institutional, program, and department planning.
  • Nurturing: Cultivate a climate of respect, inclusion, and support for our internal and external communities and lead efforts to innovate and align resources that impact the educational, economic, and social outcomes for our Long Beach communities.
    • Revitalize a positive, mutually supportive community of assessment.
    • Sustain a sense of belonging and affirm the contributions of all members.
    • Use outcomes assessment to strengthen and support student learning.
