Office for Assessment - About Us
The NCC Office for Academic Assessment and Program Review (OAPR) was founded in 2007. The office is responsible for facilitating ongoing assessment practices, including those related to student outcomes and quality of campus services, and for ensuring adherence to requirements for assessment established by the State University of New York (SUNY) and by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSCHE). The Assistant Vice President of OAPR functions as a resource for faculty, administrators and staff engaged in activities related to assessment of student learning, student services and administrative functions. The office is located at 349 Miller Avenue. Please consult the OAPR directory for telephone and e-mail contact points for information regarding assessment, general education, program review and MSCHE accreditation at NCC.
The mission of the Office for Academic Assessment and Program Review (OAPR) is to support the assessment activities of faculty, administrators and staff, and to ensure that these activities (1) are aligned with the Institutional Mission and Strategic Plan and (2) produce meaningful assessment results, including those related to student outcomes and quality of campus services. Further, the OAPR mission encompasses support and guidance for integrating the processes and results of campus assessment activities into departmental planning processes. OAPR is dedicated to leading development of the campus-wide culture of assessment that is the hallmark of an effective institution of higher education.
The Taskstream® assessment management interface is up and running for all academic departments and student services areas.
