Columbia College Hollywood assesses student learning on an ongoing quarterly basis. A systematic process is used to evaluate student work in order to understand and improve student learning. Faculty committees evaluate student work to understand the level that students are learning content, competencies and concepts based on the stated program learning outcomes and the general education learning outcomes for each discipline. We assess student work throughout the curriculum and most importantly, at (or near) graduation to provide information to make evidence-based decisions for continuous improvement of the college.
