A Student Guide to Learning Outcomes: Course & Program SLOs

Student learning outcomes are general skills, knowledge, or masteries which students are expected to have after completing a course or program of study. The faculty responsible for a course or program get together and decide what overall qualities or abilities a successful student should have after completing a course or program; those become the student learning outcomes. Faculty do assess their outcomes; that is, they find a way to determine if their students are achieving those desired outcomes. However, these assessments are not necessarily part of the students' grades in the courses.

To learn more about the SLOs for your course or program, ask your course instructor or look-up the SLOs using the drop-down lists below:
