Student Learning Outcomes (SLO)

What are SLOs and where can I find them?

Student learning outcomes (SLOs) are statements describing what students should demonstrate, represent or produce because of SLO Handbook Front Coverwhat and how they have learned (Maki, 2010).

Course-level SLOs can be found on the course outline of record in CurricUNET and on the Outcomes Assessment Timeline (OAT). OATs can be obtained from the SWC website or by contacting the SLO liaison for your discipline.

There are several types of SLOs

  • Course-level Student Learning Outcomes (CSLOs) are linked to specific courses, workshops, and tutoring sessions.
  • Program-level Student Learning Outcomes (PSLOs) are linked to a specific program or major.  PSLOs should be assessed after the completion of a series of courses in a program, degree, or certificate.  
  • General Education Student Learning Outcomes (GESLOs) are linked to categories of study within the three general education plans at SWC.
  • Institutional Student Learning Outcomes (ISLOs) describe the knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes students should master as a result of their overall college experience.
