Create a campus culture where SLOs are understood and valued and where assessment functions as a resource leading to improved instruction, curricula, programs and/or services. (Outcomes Committee, 2011)
Student Learning Outcomes are a means to determine what students know, think, feel or do as a result of a given learning experience. In this process, the outcomes are written by the department or unit members. Assessment of the outcomes allows departments to discover if the students are, in fact, learning what they are expected to learn. The use of assessment results stimulates discussion and directs activities that can improve instructional delivery, curricula, programs, and/or services.
