California Lutheran University

California Lutheran University (CLU) has about a decade’s worth of experience with student learning outcomes (SLOs) assessment. Driven by its core commitments of Liberal Learning, Professional Preparation, and Character and Leadership Development, CLU has designed 8 detailed institutional SLOs and rubrics. These SLOs have been translated into specific departmental Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs). The site provides resources to students and faculty as they use SLOs.  Faculty are able to learn how to write SLOs and how to incorporate SLOs into their syllabi and courses.  In addition to providing a timeline for program reviews and inventory and monthly calendar of administered surveys, CLU has made available its Program Review Handbook, and each year since 2006, CLU has held a professional development day which includes assessment related topics. CLU has also made the program and PowerPoint presentations from past Assessment Symposiums available to the public.
