Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) Purpose Statement

The purpose of Student Learning Outcomes is to establish and institutionalize cyclical processes and procedures developed and driven by De Anza faculty and staff to define and assess specific observable characteristics or outcomes that demonstrate evidence of learning that has occurred as a result of a specific course, program, activity, or process. Learning outcomes require a shift in
perspective from what is taught to what is learned.

Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) Defined:

The De Anza faculty define and assess Student Learning Outcomes that are overarching, clear, and assessable statements that identify and define what a student is able to do at the successful completion of a specific course, program, activity, or process. These outcomes may involve a combination of knowledge, skills/abilities, and/or attitudes that display behavioral evidence that learning has occurred at a specific level of competency. The ongoing assessment of Student Learning Outcomes is specifically linked to the De Anza College Mission, Institutional Core Competencies, program review, and the planning and budget process, including Strategic and Educational Master Planning efforts.
