Core Curriculum Assessment: Results and Plans
Current Assessment Plan
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) requires institutions to assess the six core objectives and provide reports to the THECB. As part of these reports, institutions are required to report on direct measurement of student learning for the six core objectives, provide descriptions of the assessment process, and detail follow-up actions.

Previous Assessment Plan 2014-2020
Faculty who teach each Foundational Component Area course determine how to assess each of the designated 3-4 Core Objectives for that course. These assessments may be projects, presentations, or tests embedded in the course. Regardless of the method the faculty use for assessment, the faculty who develop this process are also responsible for developing a table of how these assessment scores translate to the ratings of Unacceptable, Acceptable, and Excellent. The faculty report the method of assessment, the translation table, a roster of each individual student’s rating to the Office of Academic Planning and Assessment at the end of each semester the course is taught. All six core objectives are covered each semester and all core faculty report each semester.
