Bernita E. Like many institutions of higher learning, Hocking College has struggled to define, document, and assess those general skills deemed necessary for success in the workplace and life. An opportunity for Hocking College to focus on this task was provided through its participation in the 21st Century Learning Outcomes Project sponsored by The League for Innovation in the Community College. This project complemented or extended other initiatives such as the Academic Affairs (AA) ReVISIONing Learning Project and the Self-Study for reaccreditation by The Higher Learning Commission (NCA), which included a Special Emphasis on collegewide ReVISIONing Learning. Institutional Context Hocking College is a public technical college located in rural Southeastern Ohio. Enrollment for Fall Quarter 2002 was 5,250 students. Two hundred ninety-seven faculty members of whom 85% were designated as full-time employees serve the student population. Identification of Learning Outcomes to be Assessed Process for Identification of Learning Outcomes Success Skills were developed in 1989 by a team of Hocking College faculty and administrators. The list of skills was subsequently ratified by faculty referendum and approved by the Board of Trustees. The Success Skills included: 1) Communicates Effectively; 2) Demonstrates Math Skills; 3) Demonstrates Learning and Critical Thinking
