RESOLUTION TO INCLUDE STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES (SLOS) ON UHM-1 AND UHM-2 FORMS

WHEREAS, with the introduction of new WASC Standards that will be in effect as of July 2008, that is:

“1.2 Educational objectives are clearly recognized throughout the institution and consistent with stated purposes. The institution develops indicators for the achievement of its purposes and educational objectives at the institutional, program and course levels. The institution has a system of measuring student achievement, in terms of retention, completion and student learning. The institution makes public data on student achievement at the institutional and degree level, in a manner determined by the institution” and

“2.3 The institution's student learning outcomes and expectations for student attainment are clearly stated at the course, program and, as appropriate, institutional level. These outcomes and expectations are reflected in academic programs and policies; curriculum; advisement; library and information resources; and the wider learning environment.”

The MANOA FACULTY SENATE RESOLVES that, as part of good teaching practice, all courses should clearly state the expected Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs), as part of published syllabi, and that for any new courses or course changes submitted on forms UHM-1 or UHM-2, SLOs must be included in the justification section. These SLOs should reflect the SLOs of the program under which the course is listed.
