This website features Examples of Excellence, a collection of videos in which SLCC professors, instructors, and staff discuss how they have used SLCC's assessment practices to guide and verify student success, utilize SLCC's college-wide outcomes rubric, study student success rates, and more. In conjuction with its academic assessment data, SLCC provides data for each of SLCC's student service departments. The site includes current individual reports for each department, an archive of previous years' reports, as well as an annual report detailing all Student Services Assessment Data.

SLCC provides access to its Assessment Documentation Table. This tool allows guests to sort information by school, division, or program, and provides mission statements, SLOs, curriculum map grids, and assessment plans. Assessment results are password protected and not available to guests. SLCC developed a master assessment timeline and standard rubrics to facilitate congruent assessment practices across departments. SLCC has integrated a 4-year Institution level assessment cycle measuring effective communication, quantitative literacy, critical thinking, and civic engagement/working professionally with others. Additionally, detailed student learning outcomes inform college-wide, program-level, and individual course practices and expectations.
