Outcomes Assessment

Course SLO Banner

At the course level, faculty create student learning outcomes to explain to you and outside agencies what you should be learning in your courses. Faculty then use methods to generate and collect information that can be used to evaluate their courses, with the overall goal of improving educational quality and student learning.

Frequently Asked Questions about Course Level SLOs

Do I need to know the SLOs for my course?

The SLOs for your course represent the learning expectations for the course. Knowing these can give you a good idea as to what a department’s faculty believe is important for you to learn. As such, it is recommended that you do find out what your course SLOs are and think about how they may affect your approach to the course.

How do I find out what the SLOs are for my course?

You can find your course’s SLOs by reading your syllabus, by asking your instructor, or by checking the course outline website.

How are SLOs assessed? Is this assessment process going to mean more work or another test for me?

The faculty who teach a course decide on how to assess each SLO and how often to do the assessment. Often faculty will use an assignment or a set of questions from quizzes or exams that are already part of the course. SLO assessments are usually an integrated part of a course and do not usually require any additional work for you. You may not even be aware which part of an assignment is used as an SLO assessment when you are completing the assignment.
