Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)

The systematic and effective practice of assessment on the course, program, and institutional levels is a primary standard of quality for educational institutions, a critical requirement for maintaining institutional accreditation, and a mechanism to demonstrate public accountability and accountability to Victor Valley College students.

Assessment is the process by which educators determine whether and how well the intended learning outcomes for an activity, a unit, a class, or a program have been achieved. The complete assessment process includes the collection and evaluation of information about student learning, dialogue among discipline faculty, planning for improvement for the discipline or program. Through these steps, an assessment loop is completed, and the cycle continues with the implementation of these plans, and reassessment to determine whether and to what degree improvement occurred.
