Academic Assessment Policy

Kirkwood Community College is committed to offering quality educational programs that help students reach their goals and realize their potential. For this reason, assessment is an ongoing part of all Kirkwood programs. Placement scores, academic achievement assessments, surveys, pre-/post-tests, licensure examinations and other measures of educational progress provide important information about how Kirkwood students perform as a group.

If students take assessments seriously, Kirkwood personnel will have accurate information to evaluate quality, plan effectively and improve the college’s programs and services. Students are therefore expected to give their best efforts to Kirkwood assessment activities. Anonymity of participants will be protected when reporting assessment results.
