Center for Teaching, Learning and Assessment


The CTLA's Assessment office offers faculty a variety of assessment projects and activities to inform decision-making and improve students' learning and development. Collaborations may investigate the relative success of an individual project, conduct a departmental self-study or even evaluate learning outcomes campus-wide.

NSCC just completed participation in the second Multi-State Collaborative Assessment pilot of Written Communication, Quantitative Literacy, and Critical Thinking. The assessment was sponsored by the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education, the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association and the Association of American Colleges and Universities. Thanks to the following faculty, our pilot was successful: Patricia Adam; Bruce Ciaramella; Frank D'Agostino; Lance Eaton; Jennifer Harris; Billy Jackson; Joyce Jeong; Carlos Marin; Maureen Nardella; MaryBeth Nelson; Rachel Roesler; Constantine Souris.
