Welcome to the Skyline College Student Learning Outcomes and Assessment Cycle (SLOAC) website, where you will find resources to help you to engage in the process. For a hands-on resource, consult the Framework, which was created by your colleagues on the SLOAC Steering Committee. In addition to articulating our campus' philosophy about the use of the SLOAC in optimizing student learning, the Framework explains key terminology and concepts as well as provides templates for your use. For your convenience, these templates can be downloaded from Steps, Tips, and Worksheets, where you also can access steps to assess on the course and student service program level. And finally, on the Examples page are helpful models of completed assessment cycles.
And as with any initiative on campus, your colleagues are also a key resource. To that end, each Division is represented on the SLOAC Steering Committee. Though we also are steeped in learning more about this process, we most likely can help point you in the right direction.
For an overview of how much has been assessed and where to access the results, see Skyline College's SLO Assessment Dashboard. Thus far, we faculty and staff assessed 100% of programs and 89% of active courses, identified which courses need to be assessed, and determined when they need to be assessed via our three-year assessment calendars. We also have assessed both instructional and student service PSLOs and ISLOs. PSLOs are readily accessible via the College SLOAC website and in the College Catalog.
