Welcome to the New 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.
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.
