Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

Workshops

The College Assessment Committee holds regular workshops both as training sessions, and as active assessment activities.  (More workshop and training materials will be added as they are developed.)

Training workshops are listed on the Resources page.

Upcoming Workshops

"How And Why to Assess Your Program"
September 6, 2-4 pm (North Hall Building 18, Room 206)
With no exit exams and a student population that comes and goes, assessing student learning at the program level is difficult – but not impossible. This workshop will offer some strategies for taking a snapshot of student learning in your degrees, certificates and sequenced courses. (Laptop recommended.)
