Assessment Information

Assessment and program improvement efforts are expectations for accreditation.  LCN uses a systematic process to obtain relevant data for program effectiveness.   The process is inclusive and is used to drive decision-making.  The process is written, ongoing, comprehensive, and exists to evaluate the achievement of program outcomes.

Student participation in the assessment program is critical for program improvement.  Students participate in assessment upon admission to the college, during the program, and during post college experiences.  The following activities are designed to obtain student input into the academic experience at LCN.
