Academic Assessment

Assessment of student learning provides the college with the tools to help students achieve their educational goals. Student Learning Outcomes(SLOs), which include General Learning Outcomes (GLOs) and Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs), expand the scope of inquiry from the individual student (who will continue to be individually assessed in courses) to the program level.

The college has identified six general learning outcomes (GLOs) that are considered integral to providing opportunities for lifelong learning, preparing students for successful transfer and competence in the workplace. Through a formal assessment process, students are assessed in courses and throughout the curriculum. Faculty can utilize tools to communicate with students about their readiness for learning and their effectiveness as learners.
