Student Learning Outcomes and Assessment Cycle: SLOAC
What's up with the new acronym?
What have we come up with?
Examples from Miramar
Standardizing our SLOAC's as a part of
Learning Outcomes and Assessment Cycle. The idea is to collaboratively come up
with SLOs, find ways of assessing them, and then examine
the results to visit the effectiveness of the instruction*, assessment, and SLOs themselves. (*: Please note that this process is NOT
an evaluation of faculty. It provides a good examining curriculum and pedagogy,
and believe me, after being reminded of the statistics
of math students throughout the state, this is a good thing).
to Jack (M251) and Evan
(M111), we have 2-5 courses to examine. We were able to come up with
SLO's for Math 110 (based on Evan's work from an old
course outline and his SLO's for Math 111).
Here's the proof of our work. Our new challenge
now is to agree on the SLOs and find ways of assessing them. See
new challenge back in the Math SLOAC page.
Department has come up with a list of SLOs for their
classes that they graciously shared with me.
SLOAC as part of program
review. Although we don't have our program review until 2008, we hope to collect
SLO data to include as part of our report. After our next big report, we hope
to have SLOs embedded as part of our bi-annual self
