Assessment Process

We developed a student survey of roughly 10 questions to gain information about how the Language Center enhances student success in Foreign Language Department courses. Some examples of topics include how well the Language Center helps students to be able to: identify the language-learning resources that are most effective for their learning styles; increase their computer skills; refine their study habits; develop a better understanding of other cultures and peoples. This survey is available on the website homepage 24/7. Paper copies are also available in the Language Center facility. (Submission of both online and print surveys is anonymous.) Every other year, we email the survey to students currently enrolled in Foreign Language Department classes.

Comment segments are also included in this survey. Periodically, we summarize these data and review the results with Language Center staff. We use these outcomes to improve our services, increase our variety of language-learning resources, and refine our SLOs.
