Student Learning Outcomes 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. The college has created three assessment unit types: SLO/SSLO/AUO

  • SLO - Faculty assessors. ie course and program level
  • SSLO - Student support services, staff and faculty assessors (SSLO Handbook & Presentation)
  • AUO - Administrative leaders, faculty and support personnel for administrative assessors

Expanded definitions and purpose statements can be found at SLO Assessment Units 

Your coordinators are here to help:

The above course level (SLOs) and program level (PLOs) are the official outcome statements to be included on syllabi. These may be different from curriculum outlines of record for pedagogical and practical reasons. We encourage faculty to update outcome statements when assessment work indicates that such updates will drive better pedagogy. These updates will not necessarily be in sync with the five-year review process. To mandate immediate change in course outline of record would overburden curriculum committee and articulation office.
