How do we do it? 3 easy steps!

Disciplines and programs are responsible for developing and implementing a comprehensive student learning outcomes assessment (SLOA) plan.  This cycle will be developed individually for each discipline or program based on their resources and needs.  A discipline/program will work with program chairs and deans to determine what is reasonable to accomplish within a given time frame.

The discipline/program will…

1.     Set up a schedule to assess all courses on a 3 year cycle. This schedule includes the timeline for accomplishing the assessment work, and may identify the responsibilities of specific faculty in the program/discipline, and the resources required to carry out the work (part-time faculty grants, etc.)

2.     Design an assessment or use/edit an existing assessment.  For each course, choose an important course/program outcome. Contact faculty who will participate with enough lead time. Use the assessment:  Collect and score student work.  Analyze and document assessment results.   Generate recommendations for the next iteration of assessing that course.  (Example: Revise the assessment process or tool if necessary or assess another outcome.)

3.     Document the assessment process.  Store raw student data and analyses. Upload the Program/Discipline SLOA REPORT (describing results and recommendations) on the Student Learning Outcomes Assessment Page on the MyBC Sharepoint Site.
