The rubrics (both developing and proficient levels) are guidelines meant to establish direction and help faculty and students reach a mutual understanding of what constitutes each outcome (critical thinking, group work, computation, etc.)
Specific assessments, or measurement tools, for the
behaviors, attitudes, and skills outlined in the rubrics
will be designed by individual faculty within the
framework of their course objectives and for particular
If you have already selected your ADO(s) and level(s) for
your course, please proceed to Step 3 (slide 11).
Review the ADOs you have selected for your course. You can find the
ADOs you have selected on the Academic Dean’s page:
For Gen Ed Courses: Gen Ed ADO Matrix
For Non Gen Ed Courses: Non Gen Ed ADO Matrix
(Note: If you do not find your course listed on either ADO Matrix, you
will need to select your ADOs and level (developing or proficient)
and report your selection to Karen Marler, Recorder for the
Assessment Committee, at firstname.lastname@example.org To select your
ADOs, review the rubrics at: ADO Rubrics)
Some faculty will choose to meet with other faculty whose courses address the same ADO. For example, all Gen Ed MTH course faculty may meet to decide which other ADO will be measured. This can promote consistency within a discipline.
Other faculty whose courses have been selected to deliver one of the Gen Ed ADOs may choose to independently select a second ADO. For example, PSY 140 might measure for Scientific Reasoning and ECN may choose to measure for Critical Thinking
You next need to determine the level
(Developing or Proficient) you will teach toward.
There are 2 charts available for each ADO
(developing and proficient) for each ADO rubric.
The General Education and Assessment Committees have established two levels of achievement:
These reflect our specific expectations for students in each course.
Select the level that best fits your expectation of the skills, behaviors, etc. you expect students in your course to achieve.
(For examples of ADO Charts that have already been completed, please go to the Academic Deans/Associate Degree Outcomes webpage: Completed ADO Rubrics.)

SAMPLE LANGUAGE FOR SYLLABI: The course goals and objectives incorporate specific Associate Degree Outcomes (ADOs) established by the JCC Board of Trustees, administration, and faculty. These goals are in concert with four-year colleges, universities, and reflect input from the professional communities we serve. ADOs guarantee students achieve goals necessary for graduation credit, transferability, and professional skills needed in many certification programs. The ADOs and course objectives addressed in this class include the following:
