Institutional Learning Outcomes

Hawaiʻi Community College has adopted new Institutional Learning Outcomes. Beginning in Fall, 2012, programs will begin implementing assessment strategies for the new ILOs.

  • Our graduates will be able to communicate effectively in a variety of situations.
  • Our graduates will be able to gather, evaluate and analyze ideas and information to use in overcoming challenges, solving problems and making decisions.
  • Our graduates will develop the knowledge, skills and values to make contributions to our community in a manner that respects diversity and Hawaiian culture.

Institutional Learning Outcomes are achieved by students as a result of their experiences at the college. They state what students will be able to do based on their experiences at the College. The development, revision and assessment of institutional learning outcomes belong with the College Council.

General Education Learning Outcomes

  1. Communication - Speak and write to communicate information and ideas in professional, academic and personal settings.
  2. Critical Reading - Read critically to synthesize information to gain understanding.
  3. Critical Thinking - Make informed decisions through analyzing and evaluating information.
  4. Information Competency - Retrieve, evaluate and utilize information.
  5. Technological Competency - Employ computer technology to perform academic and professional tasks.
  6. Quantitative Reasoning - Apply mathematical concepts, methods, and problem-solving strategies to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate real-world problems in quantitative terms.
  7. Areas of Knowledge - Utilize methods, perspectives, and content of selected disciplines in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities.

  9. Cultural Diversity - Articulate and demonstrate an awareness and sensitivity to cultural diversity.
  10. Ethics - Behave in an informed and principled manner.

General Education Learning Outcomes are focused on the general education curriculum. They state what students will be able to do as a result of their participation in courses with a general education component. The development and revision of general education learning outcomes, including alignment with other learning outcomes, belong with the Academic Senate. The assessment of general education learning outcomes belongs with program faculty.

Program Learning Outcomes

Program Learning Outcomes specify what students will know and be able to do after completing a designated program. Program outcomes are focused on the significant components of a program. Approximately six or less outcomes for a program are reasonable. Program faculty and staff are responsible for the development, revision, and assessment of program learning outcomes, including alignment with other learning outcomes.

Each program meets at least one of the institutional learning outcomes and general education learning outcomes. Program outcomes may be assessed through program courses and/or a capstone, cumulative or comprehensive program requirement. Each program, department, or designated cluster of courses creates a comprehensive assessment plan. They include a discussion of their assessment results and changes made as a result of assessment within their required program review.
