welcome to simple doable meaningful assessments
Welcome to “Simple, Doable, Meaningful Assessments”
  • Fall 2010:
    • One-on-one Department Meetings: people getting comfortable with the process, understanding how to make this simple and meaningful
    • Where we can improve: People are still frustrated at workload, confusion, lack of participation
      • Department-level assistance will continue to come from Micah and Devon so that we can help people create and manage Simple, Doable and Meaningful Assessments
  • Aha! Moments:
  • *Behavioral Sciences (how to discuss assessment results with colleagues)
  • *Nursing(how to assess a tutoring course)
  • *CVT(how to use SLO Assessment data to fight for intersession courses)

slo assessments
SLO Assessments
  • Simple
    • Assessments should not be overly complicated– you should capitalize on graded assignments you are already using in your classes!
  • Doable
    • Assessments should be sustainable– perhaps a rubric would make grading among sections easier or more useful , data-wise. If it’s taking you too long and is becoming too frustrating, start thinking about other options (we can help!)
  • Meaningful
    • Assessments should measure things you care about and want data about– don’t just do this for accreditation, do it in a way that will help you reach your goals!

Data Analysis

Results: The class as a whole met the expectations at a percentage of 73.4%. This met our benchmark of 70%.

Closing the Loop

Continuous Improvement:

Although the class as a whole met the expectations with regard to this outcome, in our next assessment cycle we will consider the following:

We are happy with the SLO as articulated

We will raise our proficiency benchmark to 75%

We will be more specific in the assessment, noting more specifically what students should include

We will provide students with the rubric in advance of the assessment.

We will consider advising students to compile their leisure reading list at the beginning of the course

We will recommend “sun blocking” shades for the bedroom

how else can i make slo assessment simple doable and meaningful
How Else Can I Make SLO Assessment Simple, Doable and Meaningful
  • Rubrics
  • Take Perfection Out of the Equation
  • Have Meaningful Department-wide Conversations (consider doing these during Flex Week so Adjuncts can attend and offer input, too).
    • Conversations don’t just need to include the instructors involved on a particular assessment– these conversations can be useful for all instructors!
