Updates from the SLO Coordination Team - S' 2017

February 15, 2017

 

Dear College Community;

 

CCSF's Institutional Assessment Plan specifies that "disaggregated SLO data is collected for at least one SLO for every section (all sections covered), capturing the individual assessment results for every student who takes a course at City College."

 

In order to ensure that we are capturing data for every CRN, and student, the Executive Council of the Academic Senate passed a resolution on August 31, 2016, to recommend that beginning in Summer 2017, CRN-level SLO reporting requirements will apply to the Summer semester as well as Spring and Fall.

 

If you are planning to teach a summer course or know that your department will be hiring new faculty to teach summer courses, please be aware of this new reporting requirement, and please take advantage of our drop in SLO Help Labs if faculty need assistance learning how to complete CRN-level reports.

Thanks to your efforts, CCSF is now a model in the state for its exemplary and innovative work in collecting disaggregated student assessment data as evidenced by the invitations we are getting to speak at statewide conferences!  It's wonderful to be in a position of leadership and strength in the area of assessment.

 

Please let us know if you have any questions.

Dear Deans, Chairs and Faculty;

 

Happy New Year from the SLO Coordination Team!

 

As you are hopefully aware, the deadline for submitting CRN-level SLO reports for your fall classes is tomorrow, January 3. If you are not sure if you've successfully submitted your fall reports, you can check the Fall 2016 Assessment Statistics Spreadsheet which is updated daily.  This sheet lists all courses by department and by school that are currently MISSING assessments.   If your CRN is on this list, but you think you've submitted, please go back and be sure you've "saved", "finished" AND "submitted" your report(s).   When your report is submitted you will no longer see the pencil icon (or be able to edit your report) and your report will be listed as "active"  NOT "draft".

 

Drop-in SLO Coordinator Support

There will be a drop-in SLO Help Lab in the TLC (313 Batmale Hall) tomorrow (Tuesday, January 3) from 10-1 pm.  If you need help from an SLO Coordinator, please plan on attending the help lab where we can see your computer screen and better understand what kind of help you need.  

 

There are many resources for you if you cannot attend a help lab.

  1. Forgot your password? Contact the IT helpdesk (be sure you explain to them that you are asking for a password reset for the CurricUNET Assessment Module).  Remember that the CurricUNET Assessment Module does NOT use the RAM ID.  Your username is your ccsf email address (for example:  smiragli@ccsf.edu), and your password is whatever you set to last time. It is static – it doesn’t change.  Hopefully you wrote it down!
  2. Task guides: (step by step instructions for logging in and submitting a CRN-level report.  See attached files).
  3. Video instructions:
 (6.5 min, 14 MB) Video Only  |  Video with CC
  4. Use this Support Request Form to request help via email. Please be patient. It can take several days for us to respond your request, especially during the last days of the reporting period.  

We hope everyone is having a wonderful break!
