Instructions for the Annual Course Assessment Reporting Form.
Department Information: Fill in the name of your department and the year that you are reporting. If
there is more than one program or subdiscipline in your department, indicate which one is related to the
course being assessed. List the course for which the SLOs are being assessed and the sections from which
the SLO assessment information was collected.

Planning stage: List each SLO being assessed in it's own cell. For each SLO, use the drop-down menus to
indicate the assessment method(s) used to evaluate student success on the outcome. There are 4 drop-
down boxes associated with each SLO so that you can indicate up to 4 assessment methods for each SLO.
Explanations of each drop down choice are shown below on this page. Note that you can choose "other" if
the listed methods don't include the one(s) you want to use.

Reporting stage: Write brief summaries of how well the students achieved each outcome and what
changes, if any, you will make based on that information. The information about student success can be
quantitative (e.g. 82% of the students were able to....) or qualitative (e.g. guided discussion demonstrated
the students' ability to ...). Changes in response to SLO assessment can be related to teaching methods,
curriculum, class materials, texts, staff development, community outreach, administrative changes, the
assessment process itself, etc. The changes you list here could be used to inform your unit plan. If no
change is needed, just say that.

Explanation of drop down menu items:
1-Exams, quizzes, etc. (item analysis). = Item analysis of questions on exams, quizzes, problem sets, and
similar work where given items are linked to specific outcomes. Scores on those items are used for
outcome assessment.
2 -Homework, essays, papers, etc. = Scores on assignments, essays, reports, term papers, research
projects, case studies, etc. If the grading rubric is based on the components of the skill defined by the SLO,
the resulting score is an SLO assessment.

3 - Direct observation of skills = Direct observation of performances, speeches, athletic abilities, work on
“practical” exams, etc. Rubrics are useful to align grade with SLOs.
Creative projects or portfolios = Review of student creative projects or portfolios can be used for SLO
assessment if the elements of the project or portfolio align with the skills defined by the SLO.
4 - Self assessments by students = Students reports of their self-assessments of SLO achievement through
reflective essays, journals, surveys, etc. This can be a direct assessment of affective outcomes. It can be an
indirect, but useful, assessment of cognitive or psychomotor outcomes.
5 - Final exam or final project = Comprehensive final exams or capstone projects used as summative
assessments of SLOs for a course. An item analysis or rubric would be used to link exam items or elements
of the project to the SLO.
6 - Discussion (guided questions) - Guided discussion with groups or individuals in class. This can be
an indirect assessment of SLOs if discussion items are linked to the skills defined by the SLO and notes are
made of student responses.
7 - Ungraded feedback (e.g. clickers) = Classroom assessment techniques such as questions answered by
"clickers", one-minute papers, etc. These methods can be used for SLO assessment if the items are linked
to skills defined by the SLOs.
8 - Other (describe in results column) = If you use other means of assessing SLOs choose this from the
drop down menu. Later, make a note of the methods you used when you fill in the "summary of
assessment results" section of the report.
