The ACBSP (Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs) emphasizes quality in teaching and student learning outcomes in business education through efforts which demonstrate adherence to business standards and performance results. The accreditation review process provides institutions an opportunity to examine business programs and services on a continuous basis in order to foster excellence in teaching and student learning outcomes. Participation in the review process affirms the business unit's responsibility for the quality of business education and demonstrates commitment to continuous quality improvement.
Trident Technical College (TTC) uses an orderly and structured plan to periodically assess its operations and processes, following the guidelines of the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education (CHE), the State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education (SBTCE), and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).
Each associate degree program utilizes a Curriculum Assessment Plan (CAP), which identifies the broad, discipline-specific learning outcomes that students completing the program should have mastered. The CAP also outlines detailed strategies for collecting and evaluating evidence of this learning. TTC assesses academic programs on a two-year cycle. The first year of this cycle is devoted to data gathering and analysis, while the second year is geared towards the implementation of improvements. In addition, each year the college reviews data that provide insights on the overall status of its academic programs in accordance with the SBTCE Annual Program Evaluation.
