The Moreno Valley College Process for
Comprehensive Instructional Program Review
Introduction and Purpose
Each instructional discipline at the college is responsible for submitting a Comprehensive Instructional Program Review document every four years. Comprehensive Instructional Program Review (CIPR) focuses on each discipline's mission and relationship to the college, history, data and environmental scan, programs and curriculum, student outcomes assessment, significant long term major resource planning, and a summary of the goals and objectives for the discipline for the next four years related to the improvement of student learning. See the RCCD-posted Comprehensive Instructional Program documents on the RCCD Program Review site. Each discipline also conducts program review on an annual basis referred to as Annual Program Review.
Round Three of the CIPR cycle is from 2012-2016, as the disciplines complete their reviews in rotating groups of about 12 disciplines per calendar year. The intent of Round Three is to revise the existing discipline-based CIPR from the previous cycle and to reflect the changes and new goals of the discipline or discipline group. Previously submitted documents are available at the RCCD Program Review site. With the 2011 and 2012 reports, disciplines with common curriculum across the district are beginning to present college-specific reports, rather than combined reports from the same discipline at all three colleges. College-specific reports are designated as MVC. Combined reports have the designation RCCD.
Calendar Year Preparation and Reporting
Each round begins in the winter term of a calendar year with a training session for faculty. During the spring semester, the faculty review, revise, and update all integrated Course Outlines of Record (CORs) to reflect the updated content of the course, the current student learning outcomes and course materials, and the integrated methods of instruction and evaluation. The writing of the report can begin at any time during the process. Some disciplines choose a faculty lead to be in charge of compiling the report. The required data and environmental scan charts are made available by district research services during the spring semester. The Moreno Valley College deadline for the completed draft report, including all revisions to CORs, is October 1 of the fall semester. All submitted reports are posted on the MVC CIPR website so that they can be read by anyone at the college. After district editing and district review/acceptance takes place, the CIPRs receive "FINAL" designation.

October 1 Deadline and Process of Acceptance for Current Reports
By October 1, the draft report is submitted directly to the MVC Comprehensive Instructional Program Review Coordinator who reviews it and determines the agenda for the first level of review with the MVC CIPR Screening Committee. The faculty are notified of the date and time when their report will be reviewed, so that they may attend the meeting. After their review, the screening committee provides written comments to the faculty lead from the discipline. The Coordinator works with the faculty to incorporate the changes requested by the screening committee.
Using the Instructional Program Review Process and Timeline as adopted by the MVC Academic Senate on April 2, 2012, the Coordinator submits current documents to the Academic Planning Council/Program Review Committee (APC/PRC) by the deadline established by that entity of the college, usually on or near November 1. The APC/PRC is the body that "accepts" the CIPRs officially for the college. When the minutes of the APC/PRC committee show which documents have been accepted, the Coordinator forwards those documents to RCCD for consideration by the District Program Review Committee (DPRC). The DPRC has to officially "accept" the reports from disciplines that share "common curriculum" with other colleges within RCCD before those can be posted on the website. The DPRC officially reviews the reports that are unique to Moreno Valley College, but does not accept or reject them. For those, the MVC APC/PRC's acceptance is the final step. The APC/PRC is a standing committee of the Academic Senate and reports its actions to that body.
