Preparation for the Coming SLOs Dr. John R. Schmidt
Disclaimer and Explanation In the actual presentation, I made the point that what we were about to experience was only one persons point of view – mine. My purpose was to make everybody in the room think about the pending shift to Outcomes-Based Accreditation and how we might affect that change. Consider attending future conferences in which the Guidance Committee will undoubtedly include workshops on specific topics to help us make this transition. My thanks to all who attended this presentation. -Dr. John R. Schmidt, Ferris State University ACCE Mid-Year Meeting, Tampa, 21 February 2014
Capstone Experience and Signature Courses Some form of a Culminating Experience Typically, a project management course. Team exercises, running through a project. Internships (akin to student teaching for educators). Co-Ops. A unique course in your program. Service Learning Project. Others.
Introduce Reinforce Master Reading plans Using Scales Understanding how to use a computer Simple QTOs Using Timberline or other specific SW Calculating simple crew productivity Apply all previously learned concepts to a project estimate Estimating

Blooms Taxonomy as revised in 1990s Outcomes __________ estimates Common Action Words: assemble construct create design develop formulate write SLO #4: CREATE construction project cost estimates Can the student create new product or point of view?
One programs example of possible PLOs. 1. Communication: Create and deliver effective oral, visual, and written presentations. 2. Materials, Methods, & Practices: Analyze the physical elements, their inter- relationships, and the procedures necessary to complete a construction project. 3. Ethics: Evaluate construction processes using ethical principles. 4. Risk: Understand Construction Risk Management. 5. Technology: Apply technologies throughout the construction process. 6. Management: Analyze a construction project by applying technical and managerial skills.
One programs example of CONM 211: Construction Quantity Estimating. Upon completion the student will be able to: 1.Search the bid documents for general cost items. 2.Perform quantity takeoff for the excavation, concrete, structural steel and carpentry. 3.Calculate productivity rate, total number of work hours, total days and the labor and equipment unit costs for numerous activities. 4.Compile an entire bid proposal including pricing, subcontractor quote and overhead for a project, and unbalance the bid. 5.Complete the Bid forms correctly according to the Instructions to Bidders and submit at a simulated public bid opening. 6.Develop estimating spreadsheets for a computerized quantity takeoff and pricing and summarizing the estimated costs..
Assess What to Assess? SLOs... PLOs (if different & mapped)... ? But NOT CLOs ! How to Assess? Tests Questions ; Case Studies ; Lab Reports ; Homework Problems ; Peer Assessments ; Team Evaluations ; Practicums ; Other Reports Define Success. e.g., 75% of students will earn at least 85% on this assessment. Schedule Assessment. When & how often? End of course? End of "signature" or "capstone" experience?
Results Track & record the results of these assessments. For example: Review of 35 capstone projects revealed 95% were able to satisfactorily complete all except the estimating activity. Only 65% of the students successfully completed that portion.
Course Materials A binder for every course in the degree program ! CONM 111 CONM 116 CONM 117CONM 211 CONM 212CONM 221.... etc.
Prescriptive Based Accreditation ALL of the Textbooks Every textbook and course pack for every course in the degree program !
Prescriptive Based Accreditation Student Work Team 7 Project 1 Team 1 Project 1 Team 3 Project 1 Good, Average, And Poor ! Representative samples of student work for every course in the degree program !
Prescriptive Based Accreditation vs Outcomes Based Accreditation
Course Materials A binder for each of the 20 ACCE SLOs ! SLO # 1SLO # 2 SLO # 3SLO # 4SLO # 5SLO # 6.... through SLO # 20 Outcomes Based Accreditation A New Approach!
ALL of the Textbooks ? Good Question ! Outcomes Based Accreditation A New Approach! What is the value ? Perhaps only for those courses tied to the SLOs?
Student Work Team 7 Project 1 Team 1 Project 1 Team 3 Project 1 STILL... Good, Average, And Poor ! Representative samples of student work to prove compliance with the ACCE SLOs ! (Not every program course!) Outcomes Based Accreditation A New Approach!
So What Might One of These Binders Resemble? Map of SLOs to PLOs Assessments from 1 st Course Mapped to the SLO that Support the Evaluation of SLO #4
So What Might One of These Binders Resemble? Map of SLOs to PLOs Student Work from 1 st Course Mapped to the SLO that Support the Evaluation of SLO #4 Still representative of Good, Average, and Poor work.
So What Might One of These Binders Resemble? Map of SLOs to PLOs Map of PLOs to CLOs Repeat these sections for the 2 nd, 3 rd, etc. Courses Mapped to SLO #4
