Assessment For Student Learning

What Is Assessment?

Assessment is a continual and dynamic process of collecting, synthesizing, and interpreting information to aid in continuous improvement efforts and decision making.  Assessment efforts at RVC are guided, in part, by Higher Learning Commission (HLC), Illinois Community College Board (ICCB), and the RVC Strategic Plan.

Levels of Assessment that Inform Student Learning

RVC addresses assessment for student learning across the college through interconnecting levels: 

  • Institutional Assessment
  • Academic & Co-curricular Assessment
  • Program/Discipline Assessment & Program/Unit Assessment
  • Course Assessment & Event/Activity Assessment
  • Classroom Assessment

Documenting Assessment through TaskStream

TaskStream is the RVC accountability management system.  It is used to document academic and co-curricular assessment for student learning.

Opportunities to better understand how to use TaskStream are provided during RVC development days and group or individual workshops throughout the year.
