Educational Program Assessment

Each Academic and Workforce Education program at Grayson College is engaged in an on-going annual assessment of program learning outcomes (PLO's). Each year a new program learning outcome is assessed and improvements made based upon the results. Additionally, a documentation of improvement report is provided for improvements implemented based on the previous year's assessment results. All certificate programs assessed as part of their associated AAS degree programs. To access assessment reports click on the links below:
