Program Review

The purpose of program review at Lone Star College System is to systemically examine programs. Several quality indicators have been identified, including 10 core indicators, 11 workforce program indicators, and 6 program-specific indicators. The review relies on some pre-existing information sources, such as reports to the THECB, and some new information sources, including surveys of students, graduates, former students, employers and advisory committees.

The review process is a joint responsibility of program and district staff. Programs are reviewed on a four-year cycle, and new programs are reviewed after at least two years of data have accumulated.
