Addressed in the paper Agents Of Change: Examining The Role Of Student Learning Outcomes And Assessment Coordinators In California Community Colleges and in Rostrum Articles, as well as at the SLO and Accreditation Institutes.
Whereas, The new Accreditation Standards require data collection at the levels of the classroom, the program, and the institution;
Whereas, Curriculum, degree and program policies, and grading policies are academic and professional matters, wherein local academic senates have primacy; and
Whereas, The management of Student Learning Outcomes is an ongoing process and, therefore, separate from the cyclical processes surrounding Accreditation Self-Studies;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend that colleges and districts provide adequate institutional support for any faculty-driven process that coordinates, manages, and integrates Student Learning Outcomes.
