College Assessment Office

Welcome to the Assessment Office of the Graduate College of Education (GCOE). This office supports the routine collection and use of data for the continuous improvement of student learning and program effectiveness. The GCOE is actively engaged in building a culture of data use. We encourage all members of the education unit to be familiar with the available data and to use it for making change through improvement cycles. 

This site also supports the GCOE in meeting CTC’s Common Standard 4:

The education unit develops and implements a comprehensive continuous improvement process at both the unit level and within each of its programs that identifies program and unit effectiveness and makes appropriate modifications based on findings.

  • The education unit and its programs regularly assess their effectiveness in relation to the course of study offered, fieldwork and clinical practice, and support services for candidates.
  • Both the unit and its programs regularly and systematically collect, analyze, and use candidate and program completer data as well as data reflecting the effectiveness of unit operations to improve programs and their services.
  • The continuous improvement process includes multiple sources of data including 1) the extent to which candidates are prepared to enter professional practice; and 2) feedback from key stakeholders such as employers and community partners about the quality of the preparation.
