College Learning Outcomes
The current College Learning Outcomes (CLOs) and associated rubrics were finalized in 2018-2019 as a result of the College’s Assessment Academy project. The final five CLOs were reviewed and revised by faculty, based on feedback, and approved by Faculty Shared Governance and the Academic Affairs and Standards Council in Fall 2018. The associated rubrics were developed using information collected through all faculty exercises at the Fall 2018 in-service, and associated rubrics were reviewed and revised by faculty through multiple feedback loops and test pilots. Final rubrics were approved by Faculty Shared Governance in Spring 2019.
College Learning Outcomes allow us to represent our success and reflect on opportunities for our students and for our institution. They allow us to reflect on the quality of our institution as a whole and offer insights as we strive for improvement. The College Learning Outcomes also assess the outcomes of our general education courses and provide information on how students are meeting outcomes of our broadest associate of arts degree.
The faculty developed rubrics for assessing the college learning outcomes. Links to the current five College Learning Outcomes and associated rubrics are below. Once data is collected it is documented in SPOL and can be used as part of our institutional and program reviews.
