Student Learning Outcomes

What are Course Student Learning Outcomes (CSLOs) and where can I find them?

CSLOs describe the knowledge, skills, abilities, and/or attitudes that student attain by successfully completing a course. All faculty are required to list the CSLOs on the course syllabus.

What are Program Student Learning Outcomes (PSLOs) and where can I find them? 

PSLOs describe the learning obtained across multiple courses. It describes the ideal graduate of a particular program and what a graduate will be able to do once they have successfully completed all the courses and requirements of a program.  These are listed in the College Catalog and on each department's web pages (see below Academic Department links).

What are Institutional Student Learning Outcomes (ISLOs)? 

ISLOs state the skills and abilities that students are expected to have mastered by the time they graduate from Los Angeles City College. Read the Los Angeles City College ISLOs here.

What is the purpose of assessment?

Assessment is one way that faculty use to measure and improve learning. The assessment results are analyzed by faculty and they look for areas where student performance is strong and areas that need improvement. Then faculty create plans to help students improve their performance, such as revising assignments, textbooks, instructional methods, or activities. The assessment process is a requirement for accreditation by the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges.
