The COMMUNICATION STUDIES department follows the CCSF assessment process as documented on the Outcomes Assessment Reporting website.
The Communication Studies 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.
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.
Course-level SLOs are recorded in the official course outline of record in CurricUNET. Course outlines are on a regular cycle of review, during which class outcomes are updated and revised.
