Assessment at Paul D. Camp Community College (Camp) is an ongoing systematic process in which measurable goals are established, data collected, analyzed and interpreted, and results are used to continuously improvement programs and services.  The Institutional Effectiveness Handbook outlines the assessment processes, timelines, and serves as a resource for faculty and staff.


General Education Core Competencies
OIE utilizes the college’s General Education Core Competency Assessment Plan and Institutional Effectiveness Handbook to coordinate the assessment of general education core competencies.  Camp’s assessment plan is in accordance with both the VCCS Policy Manual for Education Programs and the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia (SCHEV) Policy on Student Learning Assessment and Quality in Undergraduate Education. The assessment plan outlines each competency, the corresponding student learning outcomes (SLO) and how and when each competency will be assessed.
