Assessment of academic program areas is an ongoing activity of the institution. To help Pierpont assess the effectiveness of our academic programs and individual courses, students are required to participate in various assessment projects throughout their academic program. All students who are graduating in a career/technical field will be required to participate in an end-of-program assessment as determined by the individual programs.

All Title IV eligible programs are required to participate in an end of program assessment that includes national certification, national region or state-approved program based on examinations. Students who have applied for graduation will be referred to testing by their program area faculty. Students will receive official results soon after graduation as to their performance.
The ultimate goal of these graduation assessments is to ensure that Pierpont Community & Technical College graduates remain competitive in the workplace and in their other higher education pursuits.

Students with questions related to the particular testing requirements of their majors should contact individual program coordinators for additional details.
