The SPEECH COMMUNICATION department's 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 website.
The Speech Communication Department has created assessment calenders for all courses in the discipline. All course SLOs are assessed at least once every three years. Assessment calendars attempt to align SLO and PSLO assessments with GE and ILO assessment timelines articulated in the CCSF Assessment Plan. Instructors of courses meet to discuss rubrics, assessment practices. and sampling techniques. Lately, the Department has been using Master Rubrics to quickly and directly assess larger samples of students. Program level SLOs are assessed through the department's capstone course, Competitive Forensics, and through assessment data of courses mapped to each Program Level Outcome.
