Institutional, Program & Course Learning Assessments
The mission of the Student Learning Outcomes Committee is to assist Imperial Valley College's campus community in the ongoing assessment of courses, programs, and services which lead to student success. (Standard II.a.2.b)
A Grid demonstrating the relationship between course and Institutional SLOs was developed and piloted. It will be one component of program level assessments. Here is a blank form and two examples:
Course Alignment Matrix for IVC
Course Alignment Matrix for Auto Tech
Course Alignment Matrix for Spanish Nat Spkr Degree
Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs)
Here is the PLO form for designing and assessing PLOs. It is divided into two phases: Phase I (developing PLOs) and Phase II (assessing PLOs). Program Learning Outcomes form
A Grid aligning the course-level outcomes to the institutional-level outcomes is also part of PLO assessment (please see above for examples). A blank template is provided but you may also request the SLO Coordinator to provide you with one for the degree/certificate you are working on: Course Alignment Grid for IVC.rtf
For more information on developing PLOs, please see the Program Learning Outcomes Workbook Summer 2011
Course Learning Assessments
Course-level Student Learning Outcomes identified by IVC Faculty are available for review in the office of the Student Learning Outcomes Coordinator. By December 31, 2011, we aim to have outcomes identified for all of IVC's courses and to have them available through CurricUNET Course Outlines of Record. This is a list of some of the course-level outcomes written by IVC Faculty
