Riverside Assessment Committee 

The Riverside City College Assessment Committee (RAC) is a standing committee of the Riverside City College Academic Senate as established by Article III, Section 5 of the Academic Senate By-Laws.
The Assessment Committee recognizes the dual purpose of assessment as both summative and formative. While the committee strives to meet the external accountability demands of the accrediting commission and acknowledges the role of assessment in college planning processes and resource allocation decisions, its focus is on the intrinsic value of assessment as a means of improving student learning.

The Assessment Committee supports student learning outcomes assessment by facilitating college-based activities and discussion, and by consulting with and providing guidance to departments, disciplines, and other units undergoing program review. The committee seeks to foster engagement in student learning outcomes assessment by encouraging dialogue related to pedagogy and curriculum and supporting college-wide assessment efforts.

The Riverside City College Assessment Committee meets once a month and on an as-needed basis as a standing committee of the Riverside Academic Senate. A representative from the Riverside Assessment Committee attends Riverside City College Academic Senate meetings to provide a report of assessment issues and activities. 

Meeting Dates

The Committee meets on the 1st Friday of the month from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Digital Library, room 409. All are welcome.
