Student learning outcome (SLO) development is alive and growing across our college. SLO development and assessment is an area that has important links with a variety of other efforts on campus, including classroom-based research, student development, curriculum development, program design, planning, and professional development.
SLO assessment is a process that provides faculty, classified staff, and students with both formative and summative feedback on student learning. Many instructional and student service areas have developed meaningful SLO assessment plans and are currently engaged at various stages of the assessment cycle. (See the Resources section below for more details on these efforts)
Department SLO Assessment Strategy and Planning Tools provide faculty and staff with practical resources for the design and implementation of department SLO assessment plans at the course level. The strategy and associated templates were designed by the SLO subcommittee with input from the college and was approved by the Academic Senate in May, 2008.
Program Learning Outcome (ProLO) resources have been designed to assist faculty in the development of ProLOs for degrees and certificates. A variety of resources are located here that also are useful for related curricular efforts.
Student Service SLOs and updates on SLO assessment efforts in Student Services are now available to assist in the development of unit-level SLOs.
SCC's SLO Philosophy Statement was developed by a cross-constituency SLO advisory group with feedback from the campus community. It was officially adopted by the Academic Senate in Spring, 2005.
SLO Subcommittee of the Academic Senate is an open, cross- constituency group that supports faculty and staff on issues of SLO assessment and development.
SLO Presentations from SCC workshops on SLO development and related issues are available for review.
Faculty projects: SLO assessment and Classroom research contains reports and materials generated from a variety of SCC faculty and departmental projects in order to share insights and benefits derived from these efforts.
Web Resources link provides a concise, annotated list of key resources to stimulate dialogue and facilitate application of SLO and other classroom assessment techniques.
