The Texas A&M Health Science Center (TAMHSC) Academic Assessment Committee (AAC) was established by the HSC Office of the Vice President for Academic Affairs in Fall 2011 for the purpose of providing an opportunity for the standardization of academic assessment processes across the TAMHSC. In addition to creating a common assessment cycle, the committee serves as a forum for members to discuss best practices for assessment, generate ideas for improvement, and communicate with colleagues from across the TAMHSC.
The AAC brings together representatives from each college in order to discuss the assessment plans for each of the degree programs offered within the TAMHSC. Representatives are chosen based on their knowledge of the assessment methods required for these programs and their ability to facilitate tracking within the TAMHSC planning software, TracDat. Additionally, the chair of the AAC serves as the assessment liaison for the TAMU Assessment Liaison Committee.
The AAC goals for the 2013-14 year include:
