Step-by-Step Process Aligned with Training & Resources:
Step 1: Selecting Courses/SLOs
For assessment by Curriculum Teams (Before the start of the Fall semester).
Select two courses and 4 SLOs each academic year (one new course with 2 SLOs and one reassessed course with 2 SLOs);
Selected courses and SLOs need to be aligned with PLOs (AA/AS PLOs and Workforce PLOs);
Curriculum Team Chairs are responsible for filling out the Curriculum Team Forms (CT Form) for courses and SLOs selected so that campus disciplines can follow the exact SLO # and Statements for their SLO assessment plans.
The CT form needs to be completed before the Fall Semester.
By Chairs, Program Directors, and Faculty (During the
Subsequent Semester and/or Year after Recommendations were Made)
Implement recommendations during the subsequent year;
Report on the implementation at the end of the subsequent year in Compliance Assist in the Implementation section of the SLO Assessment Form and/or PLO Assessment Form (For example, the 2013-14 recommendations were implemented in 2014-15, so the report on the implementation should occur at the end of 2014-15 cycle and be put in the 2013-14 SLO/PLO Assessment Forms.)
By the Assessment Liaisons (September 15 for End-of-Year
PLO assessment or Spring SLO assessment/February 15 for Fall SLO assessment)
The closing-the-loop reports include reports on the actual results, interpretation of data, recommendations, and implementation of recommendations (the implementation part of the report occurs at the end of the subsequent year);
If system-wide curriculum teams made recommendations on curriculum changes, then these recommendations and implementation of the recommendations need to be documented in the SLO/PLO Assessment Forms as well;
SLO Closing the Loop Reports are due on February 15 for Fall assessment;
September 15 is the due date for SLO Spring assessment and for the annual PLO assessment.
