Student Learning Outcomes 

Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) are statements of what a student will be able to do when they have completed a program. They represent the knowledge and skills a program has determined are most important for students to gain from that program and include both the Success Skills (institutional outcomes) and Program Outcomes. SLOs are specific and measurable so the program can accurately assess the degree to which students have achieved each outcome, and they align with college and institution mission and values. Data on the achievement of SLOs is used to make improvements in the program and increase student success. 

Success Skills

  • CE - Communicates Effectively
  • PA - Maintains Professional Skills and Attitudes
  • CT - Demonstrates Learning Critical Thinking, and Problem Solving Skills
  • ET - Maintains a Code of Ethics
  • HR - Practices Human Relations Skills
  • MS - Demonstrates Math Skills
  • GA - Demonstrates Community, Cultural and Global Awareness
  • IT - Implements Career-Appropriate Technology
