Learning Outcomes

Student Learning Outcomes Cycle Graph

Student learning outcomes are the knowledge and skills that students attain during the complex process called teaching and learning.

During the educational process, much is learned by interactions with a variety of people and services on campus. Student services and administration help create a climate conducive to learning and provide services to support the student in their educational journey. All employees at AHC have one common purpose – to provide facilities and learning opportunities that assist the student in achieving academic goals.

The development and assessment of student learning outcomes is the process by which AHC continually improves instruction and services to maximum student success.

SLOs are defined for all levels of the college. Course or service SLOs should align with the program SLOs identified by each discipline or student services unit; similarly, every program and service on campus should address at least one institutional learning outcome.

COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES

The official course outcomes are now listed in eLumen. Faculty members may log in to eLumen using their myHancock login/password to locate the course level outcomes that IE has on file. If your outcomes are missing or you have further questions or require eLumen training, please contact Jennie Robertson, Learning Outcomes Analyst in IE at ext. 3880 or by email.

WHAT ARE PROGRAM SLOS? 

  • Knowledge, skills, abilities and attitudes that a student is expected to achieve by the end (or as a result) of his/her engagement in a given educational experience.
  • SLOs are defined for all levels of the college. Course or service SLOs should align with the program SLOs identified by each discipline or student services unit as well as align with at least one institutional learning outcome.

PROGRAM LEARNING OUTCOMES

The official program outcomes are now listed in the college catalog on pages 61-111.

ASSESSMENT OF SLOS

In higher education, assessment (of student learning) is an ongoing, iterative process consistening of four basic steps:

  1. defining learning outcomes
  2. choosing a method or approach and then using it to gather evidence of learning
  3. analyzing and interpreting the evidence
  4. using this information to improve student learning

HOW TO REVISE LEARNING OUTCOMES

The How to Revise or Change a SLO flow chart addresses how to create new outcomes (all levels: CSLOs, PSLOs and ILOs) and revise current outcomes. The process was shared with Student Learning and Student Services Councils and Academic Senate and approved by College Council in June 2014.
