Charting the Student Learning Outcomes (SLO's)

A course is a building block of a program. (See Program Student Learning Outcomes for more information on distributing outcomes to courses.)

A course can introduce (I), emphasize (E), or reinforce (R) program outcomes, as well as to address an additional outcome at any of these levels as the instructor wishes.

Below is a chart that symbolizes the first course in a program (Course I) and its Student Learning Outcomes. The blue ones are program outcomes that correspond to Goals A and B of the program and are addressed at an introductory level in the course. The last outcome is related to Goal A but unique to this course. The instructor has decided to both introduce and emphasize the outcome.
