Assessment is by nature a goal-driven, evidence-based, and improvement-oriented process that involves all stakeholders working collaboratively. This ongoing process promotes excel-lence in teaching and learning by assessing all elements of the educational process. Our culture of assessment provides institutional resources, training, and support. Continual assessment is an integral component of BCCC’s commit-ment to excellence as an institution of higher education.
