SLO / Program Review & Planning

This site hosts SLO/Program Review and Planning documents for Santa Ana College academic departments and academic support services. Previous program review documents were available on the former Department Planning Portfolio site, which has been replaced with this repository.

Program Review Processes

Every semester all departments must assess student learning in each of the courses offered. The
departments develop SLOs and assessment instruments. After assessing whether students learned a concept, acquired a specific skill, or changed an attitude, the department determines if changes need to be made to increase success rates (e.g., pedagogical changes, assessment instruments, method of delivery). At the end of the academic year, the departments assess their programs in a similar fashion. The assessment is ongoing, cyclical and meaningful to both the instructor and the student.

Institutional Learning Outcomes are assessed annually at the division level by the division curriculum committees. The Academic Senate, through the Teaching Learning Committee, has developed a cycle of quadrennial assessment of the seven ILOs. Through this process, the college is able to ensure that the students are receiving a well-rounded education. The college can therefore certify to the public and the workforce community that degrees and certificates are rigorous and appropriate.

Departments assess the status of their goals annually on the Annual Program Review Report. Quadrennial Program Review Reports include a summary of analysis of the four-year cycle and include analysisof trend data.
