The UCCC will evaluate SLOs based on the following criteria:
- The SLOs are identified in the course syllabus
- The SLOs indicate the type of performance to be demonstrated. Good SLOs typically use action words from Bloom's Taxonomy: evaluate, summarize, identify, compare, contrast, explain, solve, etc.
- Use of a learning statement that specifies what learning will be demonstrated in the performance.
- The criterion or standard for acceptable performance is clear.
- Is the SLO measureable?
- Does the collection of outcomes represent learning that is appropriate for the course level? Is the specified level of mastery appropriate for the course clientele?
- Do the SLOs demonstrate the value of the specific course to the student?
- Are the SLOs sufficiently general as to allow for a variety of implementations of the course?
- Is the SLO distinct from program level outcomes?
