Welcome to FCC Assessment

The Frederick Community College mission includes the phrase, “With teaching and learning as our primary focus.” The foundation of student learning and instruction are student learning outcomes - what students will know, be able to do, and value at the end of their academic courses and programs. In order to better understand how students are learning, the College designs processes to measure student learning more deeply than through course grading. The real value in student learning outcomes assessment is continuous improvement and helping faculty make improvements to curriculum, assessment processes, or instruction that improves student learning and allows the institution to better understand student achievement. This site provides context and training materials to help faculty facilitate the College assessment processes.
