Assessment

Student Learning & Educational Effectiveness at SDC

In keeping with its mission as an institution of higher education, San Diego Christian is committed to the idea that the assessment of student learning helps maintain a dynamic learning environment for all campus constituencies. The College has established six learning outcomes as part of its mission and each academic program has identified program learning outcomes to provide focus and meaning to the degrees offered.

Student Learning across the Curriculum

The evaluation of educational effectiveness at SDC includes both formative and summative assessment of student learning through the general education program as well as through each of the degree programs. Assessment efforts in general education are at the core of developing student skills in written and oral communication, quantitative reasoning, information literacy, and critical thinking. This year the campus has been focused on three core competencies: writing, oral communication and information literacy. Formative assessments have been done for writing and oral communication.

Writing Skills

Beginning with the freshmen level writing sequence, student work samples are gathered in all courses that have been identified by faculty as writing intensive. Using an institutionally developed rubric and the integrated assessment tools available with Live Text faculty have been able to take a look across all programs to see how our students are doing. Below is a table of the writing intensive results since the fall of 2013.  Results have also been disaggregated by program, gender and ethnicity to see where improvements are needed in helping students gain mastery in their writing.
