Academic Assessment Committee: Core Competencies

Core Competencies

Core competencies are a set of skills, knowledge, and behaviors identified as critical to the success of all GTC graduates. The Core Competencies will be reviewed and revised if necessary every five (5) years. Input from college faculty, students, and other communities of interest will be solicited so that our graduates are prepared to enter the work force and/or transfer to a four-year institution.

The competencies assessed include: Critical Thinking, Communication (Oral and Written), Professionalism, and Information Literacy.

Core Competencies are assessed using common rubrics developed and tested by members of the Academic Assessment Committee along with faculty from across the college. They are accessible in Blackboard to ease data collection. The rubrics are designed to assess achievement of student learning of the core competencies across the college within the various credentials offered at Greenville Tech - certificate, diploma, associate degree, and bachelor degree programs.

The rubrics are included below for reference only. Assessment must be completed within courses in Blackboard.

Core Competency Rubrics for Certificate Programs

The rubrics are designed for each credential offered at the college. Programs will use rubrics designated for their credential with the exception of advanced certificate programs (post-associate degree programs) such as Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Computed Tomography, and the Cancer Data Management program. These programs will use the rubrics designated for associate/diploma degree programs.
