Teaching & Learning

At SSC, we take great pride in examining how well our students learn so that we can continually improve the learning process. Whether it is a course, program, or general education component, we utilize various assessment techniques to determine what works best for student success toward mastery of the learning objectives. Our faculty and administrators from academic and student services areas collaborate and modify instruction and services for optimal learning. We are an institution which is learning focused.

How do we determine what learning has taken place? Faculty generally will utilize one of the following techniques:

  • Juried Performances
  • Pre and Post Tests
  • Simulated Work Experiences
  • Case Studies
  • Debates
  • Essay Exam Questions
  • Laboratory Exercises
  • Field Supervision/Internship Experiences
  • Portfolios
  • Research Papers
  • Literature Reviews
  • Standardized Exams
  • Self Evaluation
  • Peer Evaluation

In addition to the above learning assessments, we look at student success in program completion, licensure examinations, employment, or college transfer to monitor how well our students do when they complete their learning experience at SSC.
