Writing Student Learning Outcome Statements

Student Life Assessment Committee Workshop

January 20, 2010


Purpose of the Workshop

  • Discuss the importance of documenting the student learning that occurs through Student Life initiatives

  • Provide guidance on developing meaningful and measurable student learning outcome statements


A Scenario for Discussion

The budget is tight and programs and personnel may need to be eliminated. The president makes clear that academic programs have higher priority than non-academic programs. There is a general perception that Student Life initiatives are of little educational value.


Scenario (cont.)

The vice president for student life will be meeting with the president soon to review the division budget. The vice president plans to advocate for student life using the Learning Reconsidered framework that valuable learning occurs outside the classroom.


Scenario (cont.)

The vice president sends an urgent request to every department within student life: “Submit documentation of the out-of-class learning that students experience through the programs and services of your office.”

What will you submit?


Discussion of Scenario

  • Under the circumstances described, is it a reasonable request?

  • How would you rate your current ability to respond (Good/Fair/Poor)?

  • This exercise highlights the importance of connecting our programs and practices to the student learning experience.
