The Foreign Languages department follows the CCSF assessment process as documented on the Outcomes Assessment Reporting website. For more details, please contact the department chair and view the rest of our department website.
Foreign Language Department's Plan for SLO Assessment:
Each semester we look at one SLO aspect of a level for assessment and changes. Each language group meets individually at language break-out sessions which are part of our department meeting each FLEX day to decide which SLO(s) will be assessed that semester and how they will be assessed. Generally, faculty devise a common set of questions to be given at the same time of the semester in each class where SLOs will be assessed. Faculty also discuss improvements they will make to the curriculum based on last semester's SLO assessments.
Faculty meet informally throughout the semester to tweak the assessment plan, make adjustments, and discuss curriculum changes based on previous assessments.
SLO assessment and reporting have enhanced collaboration between the faculty in each language section and across the department.
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 (see above listing).
Course-level SLOs are recorded in the official course outline of record in he Public Search area of CurricUNET. Course outlines are on a regular cycle of review, during which class outcomes are updated and revised.
Be sure to choose Courses if you are looking a course outline. By choosing the Subject from the drop-down menu you will see all courses in a given subject. You may specify the course number (eg. 1A) to see one particular course.
