The Assessment Team (A-Team) of Western Wyoming Community College, established in 1994, is a reporting committee to the President and Executive Council. The
mission of the Assessment Team, which is closely related to the College’s mission, purposes, and Guiding Principles, is to provide assessment of the institution on
a continuous basis as an on-going effort to meet the requirements of reaffirmation as set forth by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association
of Colleges and Schools.
Curriculum-level assessment measures the general education component included in all associate degrees through assessment of the Goals for Student Success as
defined by WWCC. According to the Goals for Student Success, students will be able to Communicate Competently, Retrieve Information, See Issues from Multiple
Perspectives, Solve Problems, and Develop Life Skills.
The assessment process will occur on a systematic, three-year cycle, which will coincide with the three-year terms of the Assessment Team Committee. During that
three-year cycle, the Assessment Team will conduct assessment as deemed necessary for the institution. A “Vital Few,” 2-3 areas of focus, will be identified and
targeted for improvement during the cycle.
