Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) are explicit statements describing knowledge, skills, abilities, and attitudes that a student will be able to demonstrate at the end (or as a result) of his or her engagement in a particular lesson, course, program, or collegiate experience. SLOs are assessed at the Course, Program and Institutional levels.
Student Learning Outcomes align closely with the EMSA Mission which states:
The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs advances learning throughout the student life-cycle by providing services, opportunities and program that promote student engagement and student success.
To ensure that we adhere to our mission, EMSA units drafted learning outcomes beginning in the fall 2009 semester.
