Program Reviews 

A review is an opportunity for self-study, self-renewal and recognition of the excellence of North Central Missouri College’s educational and support programs, as well as an opportunity to identify areas that may need improvement. Reviews involve self-scrutiny by all college entities to determine how well each NCMC program/department is achieving objectives and advancing the mission, vision, goals and institutional learning outcomes of the college. Documentation includes relevant information as to how assessments are administered, student performance is measured, results are used for curriculum improvement, and assessment processes are reviewed and validated. Results from these reviews are used in planning on the program and institutional levels, which influence strategic planning and budgeting. Every review is completed on a five-year, rotating schedule and involves an external review by a panel outside of the program/service area.

Program Review Rotation Schedule: Fall, 2014, to Spring, 2019

Academic Program Review Form is used for: Associate in Arts degrees, Associate in Arts & Teaching degrees, and Associate in Applied Sciences degrees and certificates by department.
