Co-curricular assessment is the ongoing process of understanding, improving, and documenting the continuous improvement of student and academic support services. It is a cyclic process used to identify areas for improvement of services and to facilitate and validate institutional effectiveness. Where possible, guidelines from Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) are incorporated into the process for non-academic assessment at the College.
Through our mission, vision, and core values, Stark State College emphasizes a culture of quality services in support of student success. The core values serve to emphasize our commitment to our students, and to the continuous improvement of service quality. Assessment of student and academic support services provides the college with the tools to help students achieve their educational goals.
