The Broadcast Electronic Media Arts department follows the CCSF assessment process as documented on the Outcomes Assessment Reporting website.
Our department-specific Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) assessment process is documented and described below in three sections that together make one complete and invaluable department: Instructional, Broadcast Media Services, and Educational Access Television.
Department SLO Assessment Process
The Broadcast Electronic Media Arts Department faculty and staff have agreed on a consistent process to continually assess and improve our teaching and service outcomes. Details:
BEMA faculty are dedicated to maintaining the highest possible quality of education. Our Instructional SLO assessment process supports our students’ learning by continually assessing, examining, refining and re-assessing students’ achievement of each outcome. Faculty meet to discuss current assessments and data at least two times each academic year. Typically during department flex meetings and once at an SLO dedicated meeting.
BEMA is comprised of three symbiotic sections: Instruction, Broadcast Media Services and Educational Access Television. As a department, we offer 17 certificate programs. All these programs and sections have closed the loop on assessment and are in continual ongoing assessment at regular intervals on a rotating basis.
