Educational and Administrative Support Unit Assessment

Educational and Administrative Support Unit Assessment

While the primary focus of assessment for the improvement of student learning remains upon Trinidad State College's instructional programs, Educational and Administrative Support Units are also included in order to have a comprehensive institutional effectiveness program. In these units, measurement of outcomes and goals predominantly focus on:

  • Student, customer, employer, constituent satisfaction
  • Direct measures of unit performance or levels of service (efficiency & effectiveness)
  • Ability of student or client after receiving service
  • Validation of services by external reviews

After conducting assessment activities in Educational and Administrative Support Units, each unit uses the results to improve its services to students or other clientele (including TSC staff as customers). The use of assessment results is not only important to improving services, it is also vital to document how TSC is accomplishing its Strategic Goals and Mission.
