Quality Enhancement Plan
The Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) is a focused plan that engages the entire Miles College community – students, faculty, staff, administrators, alumni and trustees – in addressing a well-defined and focused topic that contributes to institutional improvement through strengthening student learning.
The QEP is a significant component of the reaffirmation of accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). It is designed to demonstrate the institution’s capacity to address significant issues and aspirations. Miles College has taken the opportunity to challenge itself towards improvement, to enhance the quality of student learning, and to add value to the institution and the students it serves.
In order to improve the collegiate experience at Miles College, the QEP will focus on reading skills of students across the curriculum through content-based reading instruction.
Miles College’s focus is: Enhancing Reading Through Metacognition
Metacognition is “thinking about thinking.” Utilizing this strategy with reading and studying course material can ultimately improve long-term academic performance.
According to SACSCOC, “Student learning is defined broadly in the context of the QEP and may address a wide range of topics or issues. Student learning may include changes in students’ knowledge, skills, behaviors, and/or values that may be attributable to the collegiate experience.”
Miles College’s QEP Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs):
- - Students will demonstrate improvement in reading comprehension.
- - Students will demonstrate the ability to think and analyze critically.
- - Students will demonstrate knowledge of their learning and study strategies.
