RichmondCC’s Quality Enhancement Plan

Richmond Community College recognizes the importance of preparing students to be competitive and successful in their academic and professional endeavors –– and possessing effective oral and written communication skills plays an integral role in student achievement. Our Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) focuses on impacting student learning and supports all elements of RichmondCC’s mission, vision and strategic directives, improving the quality of education and enhancing the quality of life for students.

The goal of RichmondCC’s Quality Enhancement Plan is to improve our graduates’ ability to communicate effectively in their chosen career and educational paths. The Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) of the program include that, given a professional or academic context appropriate to the student’s chosen career or education path:

  • The student will express thoughts and ideas in writing using Standard English and appropriate vocabulary.
  • The student will express thoughts and ideas orally using Standard English and appropriate vocabulary.
  • The student will select and use appropriate means and methods to communicate thoughts and ideas.

Feel free to use the QEP Assessment Rubric and Communication Guidelines checklist below to measure all three QEP SLOs as you begin to incorporate oral and written assignments into your courses. Please remember that unless your area of instruction is currently participating in implementation or assessment, there is no requirement at this time to incorporate both an oral or written assignment.
