Committee on Learning Assessment for Student Success (CLASS)
The Committee on Learning Assessment for Student Success (CLASS) has been established to support curricular and co-curricular units in the assessment of student learning outcomes to enhance student success. CLASS will coordinate assessment efforts of curricular and co-curricular units across the university. Members of CLASS represent their constituent curricular and co-curricular units. Each college appoints a representative to CLASS to coordinate college assessment activities and contribute to campus wide assessment efforts as the college representative. The College Coordinator Charge outlines the responsibilities for coordination at the college level.
The CLASS Charge was reaffirmed in 2016. The committee is scheduled to meet six times in the academic year in two formats. One format is the typical committee format with a focus on collaboration, planning, problem solving, and utilizing data for decision-making relative to the CLASS Charge. The second format is structured as a working group or Professional Learning Community (PLC) in support of the following aspects of the CLASS Charge:
- Providing guidance and supporting department and program level assessment efforts across curricular and co-curricular units. Support includes being available for consultation on the development of assessment plans, providing ideas on contemporary trends in assessment gained through professional development or CLASS participation, and communicating university requirements for assessment to department and program assessment coordinators.
- Providing guidance and assistance to departments and curricular and co-curricular programs with mapping CSUSB Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs) with other levels of outcomes (e.g. Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs), General Education Learning Outcomes (GLOs), Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs).
- Creating opportunities to support a campus culture of assessment and raise consciousness of the ways that assessment can support student success.
