Where to find resources and help
The SLO module is accessed through CurricUNET. Log into the system as you would normally. From the menu on the left, under the Build section, click the "Outcomes Assessment" link. Anyone who has access to a discipline in CurricUNET has access to the SLO module with the same rights. Please contact Heather Rau or Marie McSpadden if you would like to request for a faculty to have access to a particular discipline.
SLO module training sessions (approved for FLEX)
Thursday, December 5, 3:30-4:30pm, LB 216 (CFE Computer Lab)
Wednesday, December 18, 3:00-4:00pm, LB 216 (CFE Computer Lab)
A template for the assessment planning schedule can be downloaded from the SLO webpage: http://www.butte.edu/departments/slo/toolkit.html
Note: The template is an example and starting point. You are free to conceptualize the schedule in a way that is more useful for your program(s). For instance, in some disciplines the PLOs column will need to capture PLOs for multiple degrees/certificates or, multiple PLOs columns may be desirable. Some areas, such as Agriculture, might find it more practical to create entirely separate assessment planning schedules (Ag Business, Ag Science, Environmental Horticulture, etc.). As I receive completed schedules, I will upload them to the website to provide different examples.
The Large Group Session on Institute Day afternoon (January 22nd) will again be dedicated to SLOs. This time, however, I am not bringing a specific assignment (such as the GELO mapping we did in August). Instead, the bulk of the time will be available for you to break out into discipline groups. You might use the time to finalize your assessment planning schedule. And/or, the time can be spent dialoguing about the results of assessment activities in Spring/Fall 2013 and planned improvements (elements needed in the SLO Report). And/or, if time allows you might identify assessment methods and tools for Spring 2014.
Note: The Unit Plan due date remains Monday, January 27.
