Course Assessment and Student Learning Outcomes (SLO's)

Successful students

Courses are the major building blocks of programs. Their SLO’s and the level at which they are addressed determine their content, activities and assessment methods.

As with Program SLO's Course SLO's focus on:

  1. Major Content Knowledge
  2. Communication Skills
  3. Critical Thinking Skills
  4. Professionalism
  5. Ethics
  6. Professional Skills
  7. Research Methodology as appropriate

Course SLO's may address the above at all levels of Bloom's Taxonomy: Knowledge, Comprehension & Application, Analysis, Synthesis & Evaluation.
