How well are students demonstrating learning in Arts & Letters?


Figure 1

Percent of Student Learning Outcome Achievement Across A & L Programs

Figure 1 above shows that student achievement of program learning outcomes (across all Arts & Letters programs) has increased from 49% in 2015 -2016 to 78% in 2016-2017, and 82% in 2017-2018.  Arts and Letters programs have consistently used assessment methods, interpreted SLO evidence, determined various teaching and learning items that need improvement, and evaluated the results of those improvement actions.  This chart reflects the schools actions of continuousimprovement supporting increased student learning.

Figure 2

Percent of A & L Programs with ALL SLOs Achieved at 80% or Higher

Figure 2 above illustrates the percentage of 14 Arts and Letters programs where the learning outcomes for a program have all been achieved by students at 80% or higher.  This percentage was 14% in 2015-2016, increased to 43% in 2016-2017, and again increased to 58% in 2017-2018.


How well are Students Learning within Department Programs?

All programs identify valid assessment measures and report on how well students are performing the essential abilities within the learning major.  CSN has set a goal for all student learning outcomes (program or course) to be achieved by students at 80% or higher.  For each of the programs listed below, student learning outcome achievement is shown as student performance averaged across all program student learning outcomes (SLOs).
