Office of Assessment of Student Academic Achievement

As you explore our website, you will find that Hocking College is a learner-centered, two-year college that focuses on interactive, hands-on learning to promote learner success. We are committed to providing learning experiences that enable our students to acquire the skills and knowledge essential to their future success.

"Assessment is an ongoing process aimed at understanding and improving student learning. It involves making our expectations explicit and public; setting appropriate criteria and high standards for learning quality; systematically gathering, analyzing, and interpreting evidence to determine how well performance matches those expectations and standards; and using the resulting information to document, explain, and improve performance," Tom Angelo, AAHE Assessment Forum, said.

Within the Assessment of Student Academic Achievement area, you can find information about the Hocking College Assessment Plan, Student Success Plan, Assessment Vocabulary and Definitions, Assessment Tools and Methods, Success Skills, and Program Assessment Portfolios.
