Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) 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. Outcomes assessment, including at the course, program, and institutional levels, 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.
