Student Learning Outcomes

Institutional Learning Outcomes

Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs)

The ILOs are driven by the College鈥檚 mission and Strategic Plan and represent what all students should learn at 澳门开奖直播 regardless of their program of study, and both inside and outside of their coursework. All student learning outcomes at the course, program and general education levels align with the ILOs.

Program Assessment 鈥 Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)

厂颁颁鈥檚 faculty have designated a set of Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs) for every degree, diploma and certificate offered by the college. PLOs are the knowledge, skills, and abilities that students can expect to attain through completing their specific program of study. Students鈥 attainment of PLOS is regularly assessed through course-embedded assignments and reviewed annually by the program faculty and administrators.

The 澳门开奖直播 Core consists of a set of student learning outcomes aimed at the development of knowledge and skills beyond those specific to an occupation and at academic, personal, and social growth. The courses that make up the 澳门开奖直播 Core support and assess these student learning outcomes.

General Education at 澳门开奖直播 Community College supports the College鈥檚 mission of empowering and transforming our diverse learners by providing students with transferrable, broad-based skills and knowledge, preparing them to acquire new competencies, broaden their perspectives, adapt to the needs of a changing society and participate responsibly in local, national. and global communities. All GELOs are aligned with Institutional Learning Outcomes.

Cocurricular Assessment

澳门开奖直播 defines cocurricular learning as purposeful and assessable learning that complements the formal curriculum, and which contributes to students鈥 achievement of 厂颁颁鈥檚 Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs). Cocurricular activities are those that happen beyond the formal curriculum鈥攁cross our campuses and in our communities鈥攖hrough service learning, student organizations, activities, and student success programs and services.

Cocurricular learning is regularly assessed by staff and faculty responsible for implementing or overseeing those programs or activities designated as cocurricular. The College has a designated Cocurricular Assessment Team which has input on developing the assessment process, reviewing the assessment, and recommending changes to cocurricular programming.

Operational Assessment

厂颁颁鈥檚 Student Success, Student Enrollment, and Continuing Education divisions have also developed mission-driven operational outcomes for their services. The participating departments gather data to measure their outcomes and use that data to develop improvement plans on an annual cycle. The College鈥檚 Operational Assessment model is integrated with 厂颁颁鈥檚 Strategic Plan, department-level strategic planning (Mission Action Plans), and college-wide budgeting processes. 澳门开奖直播 plans to introduce operational assessment into all administrative and support divisions across the college in the near future.
