Annual Report Update on Student Learning Outcomes: 2006-2007

Dear Colleague:

This 2006-2007 Annual Report Update on Student Learning Outcomes is a new addition to the Commission’s annual reporting requirements. It is intended to assist you, in response to the requests the Commission has received to provide institutions with a framework of what is required for defining expected student learning outcomes, assessing learning, analyzing the assessment results, and using the results to plan and implement changes to improve learning, changes to pedagogy, facilities, etc. The 4-part template describes a framework for the process of implementing student learning outcomes requirements of the Standards. This report will provide the institution and the Commission with information about the degree of implementation since the adoption of the 2002 Standards. If you have any questions or require assistance, you may contact Deborah G. Blue, Vice President for Policy and Research at (415) 506-0234 or dblue@accjc.org.

The institution demonstrates its effectiveness by providing 1)evidence of the achievement of student learning outcomes and 2)evidence of institution and program performance. The institution uses ongoing and systematic evaluation and planning to refine its key processes and improve student learning. See additional details in the Standards.

Standard II. Student Learning Programs and Services
