Student Learning Outcomes
Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) are designed to identify if students, in our Programs and Disciplines, are acquiring
the knowledge to be successful in the work force and/or reaching their educational goals. Program/Discipline SLOs are
assessed in cycles. During each cycle, SLOs are identified for each program. They are assessed and recommendations
are made based on the result of the assessment. Each Program and Discipline uses their ongoing assessment process to
design Plans for Improvement, to help enhance student learning. The current SLO Guidebook is included on this page.
General Education/Core Curriculum Learning Outcomes
The Core Curriculum/General Education is designed to provide students with the intellectual competencies to meet the
demands of an ever-changing world. The Mission of the General Education/Core Curriculum at EPCC is, “To empower
students to pursue their ongoing personal, professional, and career goals as they develop skills in communication,
critical thinking, teamwork, reasoning, and civic responsibility”. To support this, learning outcomes related to
communication, critical thinking, personal responsibility, social responsibility, teamwork, and empirical &
quantitative skills have been adopted and are assessed in all General Education/Core Curriculum Courses. The EPCC
Curriculum Committee uses the ongoing assessment process to design Plans for Improvement, to help enhance student
learning in the General Education/Core Curriculum. The current General Education/Core Curriculum Assessment Plan is
included on this page.
