The Student Learning Outcomes and Assessment (SLOA) Committee (also known as “HotShots”) is a standing committee of the Steering Committee. The Committee’s purpose is to facilitate development, implementation and assessment of student learning outcomes across the campus community. Outcome assessment not only monitors the content and depth of student learning, but it also measures the success of the institution in providing effective learning opportunities. Therefore, the ongoing process of student outcomes assessment leads to improved courses, services, and programs and serves as evidence for institutional planning, resource allocation, and staff and faculty development. The committee strives to provide a resource to both instructional and non-instructional programs in all matters related to student learning outcomes and assessment, and to make collegial and collaborative recommendations that enhance their effectiveness.
