CRN-level SLO Reporting Deadline: End of semester when grades are due

CRN-Level SLO Reports - Rubric for Completing Q1 and Q2

 

Reporting Frequency and Due Dates

CRN-level assessment reports are completed EACH SEMESTER and are due at the same time grades are due. (Summer session reports are optional, but highly encouraged.)

Course-level assesement reports cover ALL SLOs and are completed once every 3 years.

Program SLO (PSLO) assesement reports are completed once every 3 years for each SLO.

General Education Outcome and Institutional Learning Outcome assessment reports are completed once every 4 years and are coordinated by the SLO Coordinator.

Student Service Outcomes assessment reports are completed at least once every 3 years for each SSO.

Assessment Reporting Process

Be sure to keep it authentic and continue in CQI (continuous quality improvement) for all outcomes assessment and in addition to regularly reporting results through CurricUNET.
 

Most assessment reports include:

  • Assessment method (examples: writing assignment, project, set of questions on an exam, surveys, etc.)
  • Improvements made as a result of past assessments (If this outcome was assessed before and changes were made, close the loop -- what happened as a result? Do the data show improvements?)
  • Summary of data and analysis of what the results mean or what might have contributed to them
  • Next steps -- do your data suggest you need to make improvements? If so, do you have plans to do so? What are they?
  • Resource requests linked to Program Review (if your future plans require resources you want your unit to request during the next Program Review...)
     

CRN-Level SLO Reporting -- Gathering disaggregated student data: What is our goal?

Current accreditation standards require every faculty member be actively involved in the assessment process and data be disaggregated (entered by student ID) and be analyzed for achievement gaps. We gather SLO assessment data by student for every section of every class we teach, so that we can review it regularly in aggregated form in program review and program-level and course-leve assessments to inform future course and program-level improvements. 
 

Each primary instructor for each course section (CRN) assesses and reports on at least one SLO each Fall and Spring semester (Summer is optional). Instructors gather and record these data with student name and and enter them into CurricUNET.
 

Each student is assigned one of the following assessment levels:

  • Meets the SLO (satisfactory or better)
  • Developing the SLO (shows evidence of the SLO, but not yet satisfactory)
  • No Evidence of the SLO (assessed, but reponses show no evidence of the SLO)
  • Enrolled but not assessed (student is on official roster but didn't complete assessment)

Because learning assessment is intended to lead to genuine dialog about student learning needs and how to address those needs, instructors collaborate with colleagues on course and program improvements to coordinate assessments and to assist with course-level and program-level assessment. 

Faculty teaching courses with multiple sections continue to work with their Course Coordinator to ensure consistency of SLO(s) assessed, assessment methods, and criteria.

In addition to providing the above assessment data, each instructor also enters:

  • Assessment method (examples: writing assignment, project, or set of questions on an exam)
  • Criteria for each assessment level (the grading rubrics used to determine satisfactory meeting of outcomes or developing or no evidence)
  • Improvements made as a result of past assessments (If this SLO was assessed before and changes were made, close the loop -- what happened as a result? Do the data show improvements?)
  • Summary of any analysis of what the results mean or what might have contributed to them
  • Next steps -- do your data suggest you need to make improvements? If so, do you have plans to do so? What are they?
  • Resource requests linked to Program Review (if your future plans require resources you want your unit to request during the next Program Review...)

Workload
The workload for ongoing SLO assessment is shared by all faculty at the college. While course coordinators and program coordinators are in charge of oversight and review, all instructors participate.
 

Recommendation: The easiest way to assess SLOs in our courses is through embedded assessments -- those that we already use (assignments, projects, exams, etc.). Instead of thinking you have to create something new, find something you already do that assesses a particular SLO and record student performance on that.

Course Coordinators and Program Coordinators assist faculty with development of authentic assessment methods and review. And they are responsible for continuing to assess programs and courses at the "deep read" level drawing in CRN-level data from many sections and semesters. We use CurricUNET to run reports that collate CRN-level disaggregated data across a course and across a program (multiple courses). The research office provides us those data annually reaggregated and broken down by demographics, so that we can analyze them along with other data we collect, and complete deeper-level review to inform program improvement and resource requests.
