San Joaquin Delta College Philosophy on Student Learning Outcomes
The primary purpose of Student Learning Outcomes and Assessment (SLOA) is to improve student learning. It is driven by San Joaquin Delta's Institutional Mission and is a professional responsibility of faculty, staff, managers and administrators. Outcomes and assessments are primarily developed and implemented by faculty and student service professionals. SLOA requires that the institution provides clear and measurable outcomes, authentic learning experiences, and assessment of student learning that includes the systematic collection, collaborative analysis and interpretation, and use of assessment information to understand and improve teaching and learning.
