SLO development and assessment is an area that has important links with a variety of other efforts on campus, including classroom-based research, student development, curriculum development, program design, planning, professional development, and student services. In the area of instruction, the College has developed Student Learning Outcomes at the course, program and general education levels.  In the Student Services area, the College has developed Student Learning Outcomes at the area, program, and general student services levels that impact the learning experiences of all SCC students. The nexus of both instruction and student services Student Learning Outcomes is at the Institutional Student Learning Outcomes level which encompasses the entire college. Please see the SLO Process Overview for an overview of the Student Learning Outcomes process at Sacramento City College. The overview illustrates that the Student Learning Outcomes process at Sacramento City College encompasses the entire college and is dynamic and constantly growing.

SCC’s SLO Philosophy Statement was developed by a cross-constituency SLO advisory group with feedback from the campus community.  It was officially adopted by the Academic Senate in Spring, 2005. The SLO assessment process provides faculty, classified staff, and students with both formative and summative feedback on student learning.  Many instructional and student services areas have developed meaningful SLO assessment plans and are currently engaged at various stages of the assessment cycle.
