The Center for Learning Effectiveness, Assessment, and Research

Metropolitan Community College established the Center for Learning Effectiveness, Assessment and Research (CLEAR) to enhance support for learning initiatives beginning in 2005. The centerís mission is to impart high standards for learning outcomes assessment by expanding and supporting evidence-based practices for continuous improvement in teaching and learning. It is coordinated by one full-time faculty member, who also serves as chair of the Outcomes Assessment Committee, The Clear Coordinator is responsible for all outcomes assessment progress reports to the Higher Learning Commission.

The CLEAR coordinator has additional responsibilities but overall, the office provides guidance to ensure that effective assessment plans and measures are considered and in-place as curriculum change and instructional improvement moves forward.

In addition to help with learning outcomes assessment, CLEAR partners with the Curriculum Design Studio (CDS), and the Center for Learning Success (CLS) in the Learning Design and Support Area. The three entities have created The Institute for Faculty Excellence (IFEX). IFEX faculty and staff members are available to faculty for individual help with assessment, curriculum design, learning community development, portfolio development, and professional development needs.
