Completed

Whereas, ACCJC/WASC (Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges/Western Association of Schools and Colleges) annual updates have been required in the past, but generally were filled out by administrators and did not involve faculty participation;

Whereas, This year's newly developed annual ACCJC reporting form involved detailed information concerning student learning outcomes (SLOs), assessment, and curricular improvement that require faculty participation in this reporting; and

Whereas, The completing of the reporting form presented difficulties and focused inordinately on straight quantitative versus qualitative data;


Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges direct Academic Senate representatives to provide feedback to the ACCJC on the reporting process and form; and

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges pursue an opportunity to consult about further reporting formats concerning student learning outcomes, assessment and curricular changes.
