The purpose of the Assessment Committee is to advance student learning through activities, experiences and results discovered through the assessment process.

In spring 2004, the Interim Chancellor of Hawaiʻi Community College, Dr. Shirley Daniel created an ad hoc committee which reports directly to the Chancellor to do the following:

  • Develop the institution's capacity to engage in a self-study process;
  • Develop the institution's capacity to assure and strengthen academic quality to students and to the community through a continuous quality assurance college-wide Program Review process;
  • Develop a college-wide assessment plan which includes providing evidence of the achievement of Student Learning Outcomes at the course, program, and institutional levels.
  • During the 2012-13 academic year the Assessment Committee developed a committee charge and the College Council approved the Assessment Committee as a permanent standing committee on May 3, 2013. The Council voted the Assessment Coordinator as a member of the Council.

    For more information on the Assessment Committee charge and membership, please see page 16 of the Committee Handbook at:
