SLO Assessment

SLO Assessment Process

The PHOTOGRAPHY department's Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) assessment process is documented and described below. For more details, please contact the department chair, and view the rest of our department website.

Department SLO Assessment Process
The Photography Department Faculty have agreed on a system to continually assess and improve our teaching outcomes.  Through the process of engage-revise-assess department has developed a flexible form, which allows each instructor to use various projects in their Student Learning Outcomes, while at the same time directly assessing a student learning objective in the course outline. The data is collected each flex day before the new semester, reviewed and discussed as it relates to curriculum development and program review. The data and projects are shared amongst faculty who also may compare and contrast teaching ruberics, paradigms and methodologies. In the Spring ’12, the faculty, less familiar with the SLO process gave a series of surveys to their classes to help form the revised course SLOs as they exist today.
