Learn more about the SLO Committee:


In March 2022, the Faculty Senate approved a three-year SLO cycle where every course SLO must be assessed and analyzed at least once: 

  • How best to utilize the three years is left to the program/department.
  • Programs must develop and document their three-year plan in their strategic planning and program review reports.
  • All plans must:
    1. Develop, modify, or review course, certificate/degree, and program SLOs
    2. Design and create an assessment plan for course SLOs
    3. Conduct an assessment(s) of course SLOs
    4. Input assessment results into eLumen
    5. Discuss and analyze data from assessments
    6. Determine and document any refinements (action plan) to the program based on SLO data into eLumen (e.g., changes to curriculum, pedagogy, assessment strategy, etc.)
  • The Senate SLO Committee highly recommends all programs work toward the goal of evaluating every course SLO for each course section offered and review their course SLO data annually as part of their unit/ strategic planning.
