SLO Assessment Process

The LEARNING ASSISTANCE department follows the CCSF assessment process as documented on the Outcomes Assessment Reporting website.

Additional Department Outcomes Assessment Process

Robust discussion and dialogue influences decision making at every junction during our student learning outcome process. 

  1. Faculty and classified staff develop, continually review and revise, our Mission Statement
  2. Faculty and classified staff revisit, and continually review and revise, Student Learning and Service Outcomes and assessments annually. 
  3. Department chair and faculty revise SLOs in official course outlines regularly. Each faculty places SLOs for course onto course syllabus. 
  4. Faculty who teach same courses meet regularly to decide on comprehensive assessments, collect and analyze data from assessments, institute changes to the course, and write assessment reports that are updated regularly. This process includes the sharing of syllabi, group discussions, creation of assessment rubrics, survey development, and writing of assessment of results. 
  5. Faculty who teach the only section of a course complete assessments alone, but discuss the course with other faculty in the department.
