AQIP and ACBSP Two Responses from One Assessment System April 10, 2010
Who are we? Why are we here? What can you expect? Single system to meet multiple accreditations AQIP process in operation Insights from a reviewer Question and discussion Background
Sinclair Community College Extra large comprehensive community college in Dayton, Ohio More than 26,000 students (14,800+ FTE) Three learning centers and one campus center University transfer and career programs Workforce training and full-service conference center
Various Accrediting Agencies Have Similar Interests Defining standards Compliance to standards Assessing goals and results Single System
The Sinclair “Alphabet Soup”
Just as Dorothy needed the Tin Man, Scarecrow and Lion to reach her goal, at Sinclair we knew we needed experts from multiple disciplines to: Continue to emphasize and implement assessment as a college-wide routine, institutionalized practice Integrate current assessment activities across campus The Creation of an AQIP Action Project (or “Follow the yellow brick road”)
Taking Assessment to the Next Level Provide a framework for a common process to identify, capture, and study student outcomes at the class, course, program, division (if appropriate), and institution levels Drive a common set of general education learning outcomes for all students Apply a consistent set of measurements to track success and provide a basis for continuous improvement

To Reach the Emerald City we must: Build Collective Responsibility for Systems Improvement The Foundation
Our Collective Responsibility Tools, Methods, Processes Gen Ed Outcomes Development Learning Liaisons Direct Measures of Student Learning PDSAPDSA PDSAPDSA Core Indicators College Priorities Faculty Members Sinclair Students
A Simple but Powerful Message “If you’re doing the assessment job correctly, it doesn’t need to be additive”

Using the Appraisal
Check Up Visit Great progress on disaggregating the data! Astounding work in General Education! Good results on action projects! Keep working on benchmarking and academic advising! Celebrate! Use humor!
“Operationalizing” Process ContextProcessResultsImprovements
We‘re off to see the Wizard Self-Study of YourInstitution.Edu for YourAccreditingBody Insights from a reviewer
Deployment Is the approach valued? Is the approach applied consistently? Is the approach widely disseminated?
Improvement Is there a constant and consistent cycle of evaluation and improvement? Is break-through change encouraged resulting in innovation? Are innovations and refinements shared and leveraged?
Results Current level of performance Rate and breadth of improvements Comparison to internal and external benchmarks Linkage to key customers and markets served and to strategic, tactical and operational plans
Off to the Land of Oz Understand the story line Get a feel for the context Look for the Flying Monkeys See the “forest for the trees” Focus on outcomes
Off to the Land of Sinclair Culture of TQG2: Transparency, Quality, Generosity and Genuiness The community is Sinclair and Sinclair is the community The Missing Flying Monkeys From President Johnson to students and back again Dean Sue “If we’re going to do it, it will be the real deal.”
Cracking the Code The code is the design of the meta- framework aligning one standard with another “You can do this once or as many times as you have accreditors.”

Questions? Yours … Ours What synergistic opportunities might you surface at your institution? How might this synergy help or hinder establishment of a common quality framework for assessment of student learning?
