A brief description of how the assessment(s) were developed:
To make a long story short we started with a pilot with a representative small sample and intended to do a pre-and post test at two years before graduation. Through trial and error, we now have this revised literacy assessment that we offer to all students in April every year and record the improvement in student overall sustainability literacy.
A brief description of how the assessment(s) were administered:
Offer every year oin April with Survey Monkey and send through the Dean of Student Serrvices through her normal channels.
A brief summary of results from the assessment(s):
Student Sustainability Literacy measurement was redesigned for the 2012 class and will be sent to all students each year. The purpose of the survey is to measure the sustainability learning that occurs at KCC from year to year. The base-line was established in April 2013 at 57.2%. With more and more classes incorporating sustainability-related content, we expect that percentage to increase. The goal is to work toward a general learning outcome for all graduates at KCC, giving our students the understanding they need to enter a green work force of the future.
