SLO Assessment

SLO Assessment Process

Since 2006, the Engineering and Technology department has been at the forefront of assessing, documenting, and implementing changes via the Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) process. The SLO process is an academic model of Total Quality Management, or TQM, a common practice in industry that finds roots in the early 1980's. By their very nature, engineers tend to be inherently interested in TQM and SLO, and our department takes pride in constantly working to assess and improve our students' learning. Our faculty have engaged in various stages of the SLO process, discussion of SLO methods, and dissemination of best practices.

In addition to all our department-specific procedures, the Engineering department follows the CCSF assessment process as documented on the Outcomes Assessment Reporting website

Program Outcomes

Our programs are on a regular cycle of review, during which outcomes are updated and revised. Course SLOs are mapped to Program SLOs. Program SLOs are mapped to ILOs. Mappings and program information are recorded in reports in CurricUNET. Programs are also fully described in the catalog.

Course Outcomes

Course-level SLOs are recorded in the official course outline of record in CurricUNET. Course outlines are on a regular cycle of review, during which class outcomes are updated and revised.
