The Hawaiʻi Community College Assessment Committee is dedicated to supporting continuous improvement in learning by sponsoring assessment activities, encouraging meaningful assessment practices and experiences, and promulgating discovery based on results of the assessment process.


The Committee's contributions to Assessment and the Program/Unit Review Process are vital in helping the College achieve our goal of continuous quality improvements in teaching, services and student learning.

The Assessment Committee works in collaboration with the College Effectiveness Review Committee (CERC). The Assessment Committee annually reviews and evaluates completed assessment reports that are referenced and used as evidence in Comprehensive Program and Unit Reviews.

The Committee provides response memos for each program and unit for which assessment reports have been evaluated, focusing on commendations and recommendations for continuous quality improvements.

The Committee annually provides a summary report of its evaluations and recommendations to the College Council for review, after which the Committee's summary report is provided to the Chancellor by the College Council.
