How to Document the Assessment
Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Report Once the SLO has been selected and assessment has taken place, faculty must document the assessment process. Faculty completes a Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Report for each SLO assessed. Faculty should assess one SLO in each course they teach each semester.
Documenting on the Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Report Form Begin by completing the information on the top left side of the form. Course Name: Music 1A (course name goes here) Semester: Fall 2009 (List semester and year) Participating Faculty: Joe Smith (faculty name goes here)
State the Learning Outcome In the first box, enter the student learning outcome you have chosen to assess. (List the SLO verbatim from your course outline)
Describe How the SLO was Assessed In the second box, provide detailed information about how you assessed this SLO. (What methodologies did you use; multiple-choice exam, student written assignment, student oral presentations, etc. Did you use a standard rubric?)
Report the Results and the Inferences Drawn From the Results In the third box, provide detailed information regarding the goals you are trying to achieve. (Give specific statistics regarding the data collected within the assessment process. Describe what the results were and what those results mean to you about whether or not learning has occurred. Compare the actual results to the expected results )
In the bottom box, describe what changes will be made to the course and/or course activities to improve student learning. (Describe specific changes faculty will make to improve student learning next time the course is taught. This might include changes in course implementation, learning activities, assessment methods, etc. Include specific timeframes for making these changes.) Describe What Changes Will be Made to Improve the Learning Process
Now What? Once you have completed your assessment you should arrange with your Division Chair to present your findings at a Division Meeting. The discussion that takes place at Division Meeting after your presentation regarding your findings and plans for implementation must then be documented on the Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Dialogue Report.
Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Dialogue Report Complete the top of the form by entering: Course Name/Number: Music 1A Meeting Date: March 22, 2009 Semester /Year: Spring 2009 Presenting Faculty: Joe Teacher Number of Faculty Attendees: 13
State the Student Learning Outcome Assessed In the first box, enter the student learning outcome you have chosen to assess. (List the SLO verbatim from your course outline)
Describe What Tool(s) Were Used to Assess In the second box, describe what assessment tool or tools you used to assess student learning. (Describe specific assessment methods and tools used in assessing whether student learning had occurred or not, i.e., a rubric, a specific writing assignment, an exam, etc.)
Report the Results of Group Discussion and Formulate an Action Plan In the third box, document the results of the groups discussion and the plan developed by the group. (Clearly summarize the results of the group discussion. Describe what student needs or issues were identified. Describe any areas where improvement can be made at the course or program level that will positively affect student learning.)
Describe What Changes Will be Made at the Semester or Program Level In the bottom box, describe what changes will be made at the semester or departmental level to improve student learning. (Provide specific details of what actions will be taken at the semester or departmental level to improve student learning. Include who will be responsible for the actions to be taken, what actions will be taken, when will actions be taken, and how will actions be implemented.)
Now What? The next step is to insure that a proper paper trail is Created, which will allow campus committees and outside agencies to evaluate the SLO process in place at Porterville College. Division Chairs should retain in their areas a copy of all SLO documentation. Division Chairs should also forward copies of all documentation of SLO assessment including the Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Report and the Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Dialogue Report to the SLO Committee Chairperson, Jay Hargis.
