SLO Assessment

SLO Assessment Process

For years the English Department has been devoted to using a variety of assessment techniques to better understand our students, our teaching, and our curriculum. This process has led to critical departmental and methodological changes, as well as vital, ongoing discussions among faculty, students, and administrators. Our 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 Web site.
