Self Assessment Tool


The Consortium Program Quality Self-Assessment Tool is designed to provide consortia with a way to begin important conversations about the quality of their collaboration and impact within their communities using a self-directed quality improvement process.

How to Use it:

Created with input from practitioners and experts in the field of Adult Education, the Consortium Program Quality Self-Assessment Tool was created to help consortia evaluate their effectiveness in the following key areas: capacity, connection, entry, progress and completion/Transition. For each area, a number of prompts are provided that may be used to describe the effectiveness of regional consortia and their members. While there are many right ways to use the self-assessment tool, it was primarily designed for use in formative assessment and by program improvement and planning teams.
