Modesto Junior College

Outcomes Assessment Work Group (OAW)


The Outcomes Assessment Work Group (OAW) promotes a culture of evidence by facilitating and coordinating an ongoing process of establishing expected learning outcomes, collecting assessment results, analyzing and discussing their implications, and reporting them across the college. Our membership of campus-wide representatives fulfills this mission by gathering, sharing, reviewing, and maintaining dialogue about the assessment process to all areas of the college. We also accomplish our mission by making recommendations based on outcomes assessment data to the Academic Senate and governance councils to inform strategic planning, improve college decision-making and strengthen institutional effectiveness.


The Outcomes Assessment Work Group (OAW) will:

  • Facilitate continuing assessment processes across the college.
  • Train faculty, staff and administrators in writing and assessing learning outcomes.
  • Receive and disseminate assessment data from the course, program, service area, administrative unit, and institutional levels.
  • Compile, organize, and summarize report data and findings in an annual assessment presentation, delivered to appropriate councils, committees, units and the Board of Trustees.
  • Facilitate dialogue concerning outcomes assessment across the institution, including departments, divisions, programs, service areas, and administrative units.
  • Assist departments, divisions, programs, service areas and administrative units in maintaining and refining assessment plans and/or processes.
  • Make recommendations to the Academic Senate and college councils regarding outcomes assessment policies and processes.
