Institutional Effectiveness & Planning • Assessment

Community colleges are finding themselves held accountable for the degree of success achieved by students in academic programs. As the issue of accountability continues to grow, community, state and federal legislators are requesting tangible results to justify the vast amounts of educational monies that are spent annually. Endeavors to provide these tangible results have led institutions to the realization that the final determining factors of all academic programs and support offices are the performance capabilities of the college’s students. In response to external requirements, this community college continues to assess its internal activities to demonstrate tangible, cognitive results for those students wishing to earn an academic credential.


The purpose of this assessment page is to provide a link for the college’s faculty and staff where forms, job aids, IER submission timelines, and other materials can be obtained. Access to the Institutional Effectiveness Record (IER) templates and policy letters are available on the Midland College shared drive and the college’s Intranet. For help, assistance, or further information concerning the college’s assessment program, please contact the office of Institutional Effectiveness and Planning.
