Student learning outcomes (SLOs) are statements that specify what skills and abilities a student should be able to demonstrate upon successfully completing a course, program, or area of study.

SLO Philosophy Statement

This shared statement of vision and purpose for Student Learning Outcome (SLO) assessment at Sacramento City College is the product of a thoughtful, broad-based, and inclusive dialogue.

The aims for this statement are many, primary among which are its ability to provide a foundation of shared values of SLO assessment, clarify the intention of SLO assessment, and facilitate an ongoing dialogue that will shape this process in a way that best serves our students. Adopted by the Academic Senate on May 17, 2005.
