Assessment Cycle: 1. Plan Assessment 2. Collect Data 3. Reflect & Report Results 4. Plan & Implement Changes if needed
Seattle Central College Assessment Cycle


Assessment is the process of planning, collecting data, reflecting, and taking action to continuously improve instruction and services. The key questions in assessment are: 

  • Are students learning? 
  • How well are we serving students
  • How could we improve? 

Assessment is not about evaluating faculty or staff. The purpose is to investigate how well we’re serving students and find opportunities to improve. 

Instructional Assessment

Ensure learning is Seattle Central College's approach to assessing student learning outcomes. Ensure Learning guides faculty to regularly reflect on student learning and implement change to improve student success.
