Learning Outcomes Committee

The Learning Outcomes Committee provide specific observable characteristics developed by faculty that allow them to determine or demonstrate evidence that learning has occurred as a result of a specific course, or program. The Antelope Valley College Board of Trustees relies primarily on the Academic Senate for advice on educational program development, standards/policies regarding student preparation and success, degree and certificate requirements, and curriculum including prerequisites; thus the Committee for Student Learning Outcomes is an Academic Senate responsibility.

The Outcomes Committee will determine a campus-wide process for the uniform implementation and assessment of Student Learning Outcomes at the course, program, and department level. A faculty chair is responsible for chairing the committee and overseeing that the functions of the Outcomes Committee are met.

Function:

  • Provide support and training
  • Recommend and provide samples of effective assessment tools/instruments
  • Provide support in the analysis of data
  • Provide connections to current campus practices
  • Provide support and data in program review
  • Provide support and data to the accreditation reports
  • Learning Outcomes (SLOs and PLOs) are connected to Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs)
  • Act as a resource group and maintain liaison to AP&P
