  • 25. Principles of Assessment
    • Assessment seeks to discover how well
    • the institution,
    • a program, or
    • a course
    • is accomplishing its intent.
    • (Aggregate – not individual students)
    • Evaluation grades students. Some evaluations are measurements within assessments.
    • (Individual students)
    • Assessment is always anonymous of the students and the faculty.
    • Those two are very different.
    • See Principles of Assessment at AC (hand-out)

    • Institutional level
    • Instructional
      • Program level
      • Course level
  • 27. Assessment What are student learning outcomes (SLOs)?
    • OUTCOME ASSESSMENTS
    • Proof that learning or service resulted in a change of the student’s/client’s:
    • √ knowledge √ attitudes
    • √ skills √ expertise
    • √ behavior
