COED 2018-19 SLO Reporting
Before you begin
If you have any questionsafter reading all the directions, contact Laura Hart [email protected] 704-687-8189.Directions are available as pdf doc on the COED Assessment Website Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)Data available on S drive / aggregated on dashboard: February 4Program summaries with preliminary conclusions (target data) available: February 11All activities and reports due April 15.
Step 1 – Preparing for “Closing the Loop” with faculty (Program Directors)
1. Gather your information (contact Ed Conway for access to S: drive)
Step 2 – Closing the Loop meeting with faculty (facilitated by Program Directors)
Schedule a meeting(s) to review these data with programfaculty(protocol provided).Use provided protocol to structure your meeting (see docs on website).Share info you want reviewed in advance.Review 2018 goals for progress (SLO and non-SLO related).Prioritize ideas for data-sharing with faculty.Outcomes from Closing the Loop meeting:Identify program improvement goals for 2019 (April 16, 2019-April 15, 2020) with faculty input using data to make decisions.May be based on SLO data or other data sources (we have a lot of data!).
Step 3 – Completing the SLO report and recording program goals
BEFORE YOU BEGIN, refer to the handout for detailed instructions – available on COED Assessment website under “Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)” link on left-side menu.ComplianceAssist (the university software system for assessment) rolls over the 2017-18 SLO reports into the 2018-19 template.Therefore, we only have to update the pieces that need to be changed (including narratives).Wewill do this via our own template in SurveyShare; COED-AO will then transfer the changes as indicated.COED-OA entersdatafor you (only data!).
Important to remember:
You are reporting on your data results / goals established for spring 2018/fall 2018 data.ANDYou are determining new goals for 2019 dataBoth of these are in the same report.

Template Highlights – Section 3
You need your 2019 goals developed in your Closing the Loop meetings before you begin Section 3.3.1 Changes Planned for Next Year: What changes will the program implement during the next year to improve student learning for this SLO?List of drop down options – select all that apply.3.2 Changes Planned for Next Year -- Changes to Curriculum for this SLOList of drop down options – select all that apply.3.3 Changes Planned for Next Year -- Assessment Plan for thisSLOList drop down options – select all that apply.
Notes – Briefly describe your 2019 SLO-related goal.CURRENTLY BLANK – MUST BE COMPLETED FOR ALL PROGRAMS if any changes for this SLO were identified in 3.1, 3.2, or 3.3IF YOU IDENTIFIED ANY CHANGES FOR NEXT YEAR TO THE SLO in the previous three questions, briefly summarize what changes you plan to make specific to your program.This will be added to your list of program goals for 2019.List your goal(s) as succinct statements so they are easy for external stakeholders to understand. Avoid jargon and “COED”-specific terms as much as possible.If you do not have an SLO-related goal, skip to the next question.
Part Two – Goals based on non-SLO data sources
Are theprogramgoal(s) developed by faculty based on non-SLO data sources?Select one of the following:My program has identified at least one actionable program improvement goal related to SLO data already in this template. We are not adding any other goals based on non-SLO data sources for 2019 at this time.My program has identified at least one actionable program improvement goal related to SLO data already in this template. However, we wish to add additional goals based on non-SLO data sources.My program has NOT identified at least one actionable program improvement goal related to SLO data. Our program goal will be based on non-SLO data sources.
If you have additional goals based on non-SLO data sources …
Describe your SLO goal. Make sure it is actionable and measurable.List your goal(s) as succinct statements so they are easy for external stakeholders to understand. Avoid jargon and “COED”-specific terms as much as possible.Give the data source you are using to justify your goal.Can list up to two.If you have already identified goals related to SLO sources, you do not have to list additional goals (but you may if program faculty have opted to do so).
Next Steps – After April 15:
COED-OA will update all results for all programs in Compliance Assist.COED-OA will contact program directors and chairs on any questions.COED-OA will generate a FINAL report for each program, to be placed in the department SLO folder for 2018-19 on our S: drive under “SACSCOC-SLO Reports and Program Review.”COED-OA will inform program directors and chairs once this process is complete.Program Directors review the final version and notify COED-OA with any changes.COED-OA submits all reports to Academic Affairs by June 1.
