Assessment of Student Learning

Assessment is how we determine, as a college that what we’re doing, inside and outside of the classroom, improves student learning. We have a well-established campus culture of assessment based upon collaboration, inquiry, and respect. Student learning is the most important job that any college does. However, student learning doesn’t stay the same from year to year. Courses and programs change. The demographics of our student population change. Technologies change our course delivery methods. That is why assessment planning is so important. If you have questions about assessment at RCTC, please contact Mike Mutschelknaus at

Faculty and staff, our assessment materials are located in the ongoing tab of your D2L Brightspace account. If you have questions about assessment, contact Mike Mutschelknaus at
