Student Learning Outcomes Definition


Student Learning Outcomes are measurable cognitive, psychomotor, or affective skills or knowledge acquired, which embody the overarching goals of a courseprogram or student service unit. Both courses and programs have SLOs.

Course SLOs should be aligned with the program SLOs for the program that the course belongs to. Some courses will be aligned with a degree or certificate program, some with an institutional-level program (like GE or College Skills), while still others may belong to both a degree or certificate and also an institutional-level program.
