PSR Overview

 

PSR - Comprehensive Self-Study

All programs and services complete a comprehensive program review on a three-year cycle. These program reviews are reviewed and evaluated by the PSR Committee, as well as any program reviews that have been identified for an out of cycle review during their Annual Update. 

 

Final Summary Rubric

The PSR review team will use the comprehensive PSR rubric associated with each review type to assess the four areas of evaluation: ServiceEvidenceAssessment, and Planning. The PSR review team will rank the program and services self-study using the following Final Summary Rubric:

Instructional & Student Support

Exceeds

90-100% = 3

Meets

70-89% = 2

Does Not Meet

0=69% = 1

Final Summary

The self-study is comprehensive and contains excellent information and analysis to be useful for planning, supporting and improving student achievement and SLOs. The self-study reflects continuous, quality self-evaluation and contains clear, measurable goals for the next three years.

The self-study reflects continuous, quality self-evaluation. VIP goals are reasonably developed. Parts of the document are unclear.

The self-study does not reflect continuous, quality self-reflection. VIP goals are not developed. Document is unclear and incomplete. Projected needs will not move forward for funding and prioritization consideration.

Administration

Exceeds

90-100% = 3

Meets

70-89%

Does Not Meet

0-69% = 1

Final Summary

The self-study is comprehensive and contains excellent information and analysis to be useful for planning, supporting and improving student achievement and strategic goals. The self-study reflects continuous, quality self-evaluation and contains clear, measurable goals for the next three years.

The self-study reflects continuous, quality self-evaluation. VIP goals are reasonably developed. Parts of the document are unclear.

The self-study does not reflect continuous, quality self-reflection. VIP goals are not developed. Document is unclear and incomplete. Projected needs will not move forward for funding and prioritization consideration.

 

The PSR Committee presents a summary of their evaluations and recommendations to the Office of Instruction and Institutional Effectiveness.

  • Program or services receiving a “1” do not have their requests for physical and/or human resources forwarded to the Resource Allocation Committee (RAC) for funding and/or prioritization consideration.

  • Following the PSR Committee validation of human and physical resource requests identified in the self-study (those aligned with the VIP and receiving a final score of 3 or 2), the PSR Committee forwards human resource requests for prioritization and physical resource requests to the RAC for inclusion in its resource allocation process. 

  • Program or services receiving a “1” ranking do not have their requests for human or physical resources forwarded for prioritization or funding consideration. 

  • Programs or services who fail to complete a program review or receive a “1” ranking will not have resource requests moved forward for prioritization or to the RAC. A remediation process has been established to address PSR scores of “1”. 

Annual Update - VIP Progress & Urgent Needs

PSR's Annual Update serves as a second point of contact during the three-year self-study cycle (approximately 86 programs / services per year). All programs and services complete an Annual Update that monitors the Visionary Improvement Plan (VIP) progress and identify urgent resource needs.

The PSR Committee has established the following criteria for urgent resource needs:

  • Changes in state and/or federal guidelines
  • Changes required by a state mandated body (such as FAA, nursing boards)
  • Broken and/or obsolete equipment; rationales for broken and/or obsolete equipment must demonstrate how these items adversely impact the program.
  • Unanticipated software changes and/or licensing changes in software
  • Unexpected retirement or loss of a faculty or staff member
  • As the result of growth

A rationale must be provided for each "urgent resource need" request and explain why the need is "urgent" and how the program or service will be adversely affected without the item requested. Ongoing items or issues resulting from lack of planning are not considered urgent (these items should have been in the department's full PSR).
