35 County College of Morris 35 About the College Assessment Over the past several years, County College of Morris has embraced outcomes assessment, with departments in all divisions designing and implementing assessment plans and processes to determine the effectiveness of their programs and services. These ongoing assessments have resulted in continuous improvements in the classroom and across the campus. Today, the campus community speaks the same language of assessment, departments share common goals toward improvement, and individuals recognize that an institution’s overall effectiveness in educating its students is measured in the effectiveness of every one of the programs and services it delivers. Assessment plans of both academic and administrative departments have been posted on the college’s website in an effort to inform the campus community and to share with our external constituencies the ways in which the College is monitoring, improving, and enhancing student learning and student success.
