Program Review at Victor Valley College

Program Review (PR) at Victor Valley College is a self-assessment by its programs used to promote institutional effectiveness and provide the basis for budget and resource planning and allocation. It is a systematic process for the collection, analysis, and interpretation of student enrollment data and outcomes assessment data (SLO, PLO, and ILO) to produce the Program Review, Allocation, and Institutional Strategies for Excellence (PRAISE) report and update progress regularly. It is an instrument for identifying areas of change within its programs, and it is conducted to promote the effectiveness and relevance of instruction and the effective use of resources. These assessments are integral to the alignment of the programs’ goals with the mission of the college for college-wide planning. This Handbook describes the instructional program review process for Victor Valley College and outlines the process to be used for instructional programs.
