What is SLOA (Student Learning Outcomes Assessment)?

  • The SLOA Committee is committed to fostering a positive culture of assessment on campus. The committee firmly believes that faculty-driven assessments are the most effective means to create a positive assessment culture. General Education Matriculation (GEM) and Program Assessment are the two primary systematic assessment processes they use on campus.

What is a General Education Matriculation (GEM) class or a GEM Assessment?

  • Each semester, faculty in GEM areas and programs across campus enter student performance data through Canvas assessment rubrics. These rubrics tie to state and program-level competencies. Your Division Chair should know if your course should have a GEM assessment.
  • The GEM Assessment can occur in any semester. The college sets a minimum benchmark for spring data entry. All full-time, part-time, and dual credit GEM faculty select the assignment(s) to assess and score students using their GEM assessment rubric in Canvas.
