The North Carolina Community College System (NCCCS) dashboards allow users to explore and interact with NCCCS data by theme. The dashboards are designed to help colleges access the data and information needed to facilitate institutional effectiveness and program improvement. Dashboards include system and college-level data views, disaggregations, historical trends, and peer comparisons.
Rubrics for assessing student work, adapted from AACU (American Association of Colleges & Universities) VALUE Rubrics, have been created for the student learning outcomes associated with Fayetteville Technical Community College’s (FTCC) undergraduate general education courses. FTCC uses Watermark Planning & Self Study and VIA, an assessment management tool, as a repository to collect rubric data. General Education Assessment at FTCC uses assignments embedded within these courses and evaluates the results using VALUE Rubrics. Please refer to the General Education Core Competencies hyperlink regarding the General Education Core Competency rotation schedule and frequency of assessments.
