Writing Program SLOs

Program Level Student Learning Outcomes articulate what culminating knowledge, skills, abilities, or attitudes a student has gained as a result of successfully completing all of the courses in a program. All programs leading to a certificate or degree need to have learning outcomes defined and assessed. Assessment results are used as evidence to make any necessary changes to improve student learning.
