Modifying/Inactivating SLOs
Outcomes Assessment

Modifying and Inactivating SLOs
Modifying course and program SLOs is a legitimate action to take if it is based on assessment data and if the modification/inactivation will result in a more meaningful and focused approach to gathering and analyzing assessment data. Departments should avoid employing gratuitous modifications in lieu of taking action based on meaningful assessment data.

How Long Will it Take?
When faculty submit a modification/inactivation request, members of the ASLO Subcommittee will carry out a Technical Review. This Technical Review takes place outside of ASLO Subcommittees and occurs on a rolling basis as needed. Therefore, you will not have to wait for an ASLO Subcommittee meeting in order for your requests to be processed. A SLO Coordinator will sign off on any modification paperwork as soon as the review is complete.

Please note that your departmental Facilitator will alter the SLO or Assessment Method in TracDat after the ASLO Subcommittee and Curriculum Committee have approved the changes. Changes will carry onto the Course Outline of Record in the Winter and Summer Intersessions.

Recommended Number of Course SLOs
In keeping with the Principles of Assessment, which encourage a focused and meaningful approach to assessment of Student Learning Outcomes, the ASLO Subcommittee recommends that faculty create the following number of SLOs per course:

  • Non-Credit Course: 1 SLO

  • 1-2 Unit Course: 1-2 SLOs

  • 2-4 Unit Course: 2 or more SLOs

  • 5+ Unit Course: 2 or more SLOs

Recommended Number of Program SLOs
In keeping with the Principles of Assessment, which encourage a focused and meaningful approach to assessment of Student Learning Outcomes, the ASLO Subcommittee recommends that faculty create the following number of SLOs per program:

  • Certificate of Competency: 1 SLO

  • Certificate of Accomplishment: 1 SLO

  • Certificate of Achievement: 1-2 or more SLOs

  • Associate Degree of Arts/Science: 2 or more SLOs

  • Associate Degree for Transfer: 2 or more SLOs
