Assessment

 

Institutional Outcomes: Institutional outcomes include the knowledge, skills, and aptitudes students acquire as a result of their experience at FSCC. Institutional outcomes represent a broad range of competence which applies to students in every program. This includes certificates, transfer, or degree programs, and are a reflection of FSCC’s mission and core values. These outcomes extend to co-curricular activities as well. FSCC has identified three institutional outcomes:

 

  • Personal Responsibility: Holding oneself accountable and morally responsible while fostering personal and professional growth.
  • Social Responsibility: Prepare students for civic and community engagement, including social and cultural awareness, inclusion, and citizenship for the betterment of the community.
  • Academic Success: *Be in good standing and making academic progress.

*Currently under revision

 

General Education: Through general education curriculum, students gain understanding of various concepts and practices that serve as a foundation for continuous learning and achievement of personal goals. The General Education curriculum provides students competency in academic skills by integrating a range of courses from multiple disciplines. All associate degrees at FSCC require general education curriculum, and general education assessment is integrated into degree assessment. FSCC has outlined four general education outcomes based on the skills students are expected to demonstrate upon completion of general education curriculum. 

 

  • Mathematical: Students will employ scientific and mathematical principles within the program disciplines.
  • Communication (oral and written): Students will demonstrate effective written and oral communication.
  • Technology Skills: Students will demonstrate effective use of technology.
  • Critical Thinking: Students will apply critical thinking skills to evaluate possible resolutions to a given scenario.
