What Do I Need to Do to Submit Course SLOs?
If you are a faculty member teaching a course, please follow these steps:
Step 1. Assess the SLOs Defined for Your Courses
You should already be familiar with your course SLOs because they are required to be on your syllabus (see the Academic Senate policy called "Course Overview" on this page). If you need to look up the SLOs for your course, most are available from the GCC Course Outlines web page.
Step 2. Submit the SLO Assessments
After you have assessed your students, there are two steps for completing and submitting assessments:
- Download the Learning Outcome Assessment Form 9.30.14. Fill out the Microsoft Word document summarizing your assessment results. Then go to the GCC LO Database and enter the information from the form into the database as a new assessment. Keep your completed Microsoft Word form for your records.
