Centralized Assessment Repository


El Camino College Student Learning Outcomes Page

El Camino College developed a provocative, witty parody about the importance of student learning outcomes and associated faculty hesitations. This video features two faculty members at the water cooler talking about assessing student learning. The video highlights the work faculty members do routinely in their daily practice to document what students know and can do. To those ends, El Camino College has developed a chart illustrating the differences between Course Objectives and SLOs.  Faculty members are guided through the SLO assessment cycle for their individual classes which are framed through institutional core competencies. Additionally, El Camino College has made its Assessment Plans and Assessment Reports accessible, in both access and language, to the public.

Additional resources available for visitors include the agendas and minutes from recent meetings of the Assessment of Learning Committee, Guidelines for Evaluating Assessment Proposals, Timelines, SLO Handbook, among other resources.  El Camino College is being highlighted by NILOA for its creativity in addressing the use of SLOs in addition to meeting the criteria for having a Centralized Assessment Repository.
