Outcomes Assessment

Course Review and SLOs

The purpose of SLO assessment in the course review process is to determine where gaps exist in student learning and find ways to improve student learning in the classroom. Assessment of SLOs for courses follows the existing course review 6-year cycle. When a course is due for course review, its course assessment plan should be completed (i.e., results should be reported and actions should have been taken to improve student learning). To stay on schedule, the assessment plan should be complete and results/actions taken entered into TracDat in spring of the year that a course is under course review. 

After a course's course review year is over, the 6-year cycle commences again and courses are expected to assess all of their SLOs again before the next course review cycle. Data should be collected for each SLO from multiple semesters of a course. 

To find out when your courses are up for review check the curriculum review web page

Program Review and SLOs

The purpose of program review is to summarize and interpret data and information collected from various resources, including assessment of program SLOs, reflecting on how your department's program(s) have been successful, and how information and analysis have led to program improvements. 

Assessment of program SLOs for instructional programs follows the established program review 3-year cycle. When an instructional program is due for its program review, its program assessment plan should be completed (i.e., results should be reported and actions should have been taken to improve student learning) in the spring of that year and the re-evaluation plan for the next ongoing cycle will commence and be documented in TracDat. 

Below you will find the current program review cycle.
