Formal assessment began in 1999 as a way to measure the effectiveness of technical education. Instructors developed course competencies to provide a structure for assessing the skills, knowledge, and abilities graduates need to be successful in their programs and the workforce. The assessment plan was built upon this competency system. Department instructors, along with program advisory committees, made changes to the competencies that align them with current job-market needs. This process continues today, and in 2005, instructors, student, and employer surveys were added as a way to assess program outcomes.
Following the 2006 HLC-NCA visit, WATC embarked on a revised process of assessment. This process allows instructors to use a variety of measures that focus specifically on student learning outcomes.
