LEARNING OUTCOMES STATEMENT

Unit name: SLOAP

LO Code: SA01c

Description of learning activity:

Consulting with professional staff, reviewing their draft learning outcome statements and providing appropriate feedback.

 

1. How does this activity complement the University and Student Affairs mission?

 

Assessment activities assist the University by providing the framework, focus, and feedback necessary to evaluate how EOU guides student inquiry and tests how well University activities are integrated. Assessment documents how student learning is holistic, reflective, purposeful, and leads to responsible action in a wider world. Assessment helps the Student Affairs Division by providing the means to plan, manage, and evaluate the effectiveness of programs and activities in leading students to be integrated members of the EOU academic and larger communities. It can also evaluate how well the student Affairs Division promotes access and provides services to students in pursuit of their academic and career goals, and personal development.

Learning outcome activities or programs sponsored by the various units will be implemented as designed and assessed with the support of the Student Learning Outcomes and Assessment Coordinator. Assessment activities will include review for consistency to design, achievement of goals, and effectiveness of assessment activities. Units will be evaluated in part by how they succeed in accomplishing what they plan to do. Implementation will be via the annual evaluation process and annual departmental reports.
