Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) Assessment Process QEP HIP Grant Information Sessions Christina Chester-Fangman and Barb Peterson Co-Chairs, QEP Faculty / Staff Development & Support Committee August 29, 2017
QEP Faculty / Staff Development & Support Committee Ø Our charge is two-fold: 1) plan training and support for faculty / staff who wish to engage students in a High Impact Practice (HIP); the focus of this training will be related to the use of the Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) rubric designed to assess a “Signature Assignment” related to a QEP High Impact Practice. 2) review specific faculty “Signature Assignments” to ensure they align with the SLO Rubric
Integrative Learning VALUE Rubric � Based on AAC&U � 3 SLOs: ◦ Student will be able to connect applied experiences derived from participation in HIPs with relevant knowledge acquired in the University setting. ◦ The student will be able to adapt and apply skills, abilities, theories, or methodologies acquired in the University setting to address novel situations or problems in applied settings. ◦ The student will be able to demonstrate the ability to engage in meaningful self-reflection that leads to self-awareness and a sense of competence of effective responding to new and challenging contexts. � Rubric
Aligning Your “Signature Assignment” with the Rubric � Move to standardized prompts for “Signature Assignment” to help students reflect critically on the HIP experience ◦ Include specific language from the rubric ◦ Use action verbs to help students think more critically about their HIP experience ◦ Refrain from the use of prompts that have narrow responses (ex. Yes or no questions)
Bloom’s Taxonomy � To promote higher forms of thinking in education rather than just rote learning ◦ SLO #1 = Think �analyze, relate, synthesize ◦ SLO #2 = Act �apply, adapt, justify ◦ SLO #3 = Reflect �evaluate, critique, judge
