CVTC Ranks Among Top 10 in Best Community Colleges

washington monthlyWashington Monthly named us the 10th best community college in the nation.

Washington Monthly looked at the Community College Survey of Student Engagement (CCSSE), which is a national assessment that measures community college performance with student engagement which research has shown to be strongly correlated with higher levels of learning.

Hundreds of thousands of students have been surveyed about such things as the number of books and papers assigned, the frequency of group assignments, the amount of student interaction with faculty, hours spent preparing for class, and the quality of support services. Eighty-five percent of each college ranking was based on its CCSSE benchmark scores in the following areas: active and collaborative learning, student effort, academic challenge, student-faculty interaction, and support for learners.
