4) What percentage of courses have the course SLOs explicitly stated on the course syllabus, department website, or other publicly available document? (Check one)
5) State the SLO(s) that was Assessed, Targeted, or Studied
Goals 1-4 were assessed Fall 2008 and Spring 2009
6) State the Assessment Question(s) and/or Goal(s) of Assessment Activity
To determine the proportion of our students did not meet, met, exceeded the stated objectives listed under each of the goals. Most goals/objectives are further defined by traits, with rubrics defining the traits.
7) State the Type(s) of Evidence Gathered
Each faculty member teaching a course in which learning goals are assessed bases assessment on course assignments. These include student projects, papers, tests, quizzes, presentations, exams. This varies by learning goal and by faculty member
8) State How the Evidence was Interpreted, Evaluated, or Analyzed
Evidence is evaluated by individual faculty members, using predetermined rubrics. Faculty scores of 0 (did not meet goal), 1 (met goal), 2 (exceeded goal) for each trait, for each student assessed are forwarded to the assessment coordinator, who summarizes all data. In spring '09 department chairs reviewed the fall 2008 data. As this included only one semester of assessment, the decision was made to review data again when 3 semesters of assessment data is available.
The College is now forming an assessment committee, with representation from each of the 5 departments of the college. Beginning Fall 2009, the assessment committee will review assessment data twice a year and will make recommendations to the Curriculum and Programs committee regarding program goals, and curriculum.
