Course SLO Assessment and Dialogue Workshops

These faculty workshops are two-fold. The first hour will be dedicated to completing your assessments and the second hour will be set aside for faculty discussion on SLO findings. What will you will need to attend these workshops? You'll need the student data (assessment scores) to complete your SLO assessment tool. If you used a detailed rubric that the form cannot accommodate, you may want to bring a copy of that rubric with you. Bring any sample student projects-essays, research projects, skill evaluation forms, department exams, papers, or written exams-to illustrate scores according to the rubric. You'll need to submit one sample for each value on the rating/rubric scale. I will attach it to your assessment tool. I will be available to answer any questions about populating the form at the workshop as well.
