ACCJC Memo on Institutional Reports of SLOs
April 5, 2012
Memo to: Chief Executive Officers and Accreditation Liaison Officers
From: Barbara Beno, Ph.D.
Subject: 2012-13 Institutional Reports on Institutional Status on Student Learning Outcomes and Assessment of Learning
A few years ago, this office informed you that the Commission expected institutions to demonstrate they were implementing the (2002) Accreditation Standards that deal with student learning outcomes by showing the institution to be at the Proficiency Level on the ACCJC's Rubric on Institutional Effectiveness, Part III, by fall 2012. On February 24, 2012, I wrote to inform you that the Commission would be conducting a special assessment of institutional status with respect to implementation of the standards about student learning outcomes during the 2012-13 academic calendar year; included was information about whether your institution's report was due October 15, 2012 or march 15, 2013.
Attached please find the College Status Report on Student Learning Outcomes Implementation to be used for completing the college report. The report form is also being sent to you in electronic form so that you can easily download and use it. Instructions appear on the form itself. You will find the report a useful document for assessing your own institution's progress in meeting Standards and you should keep it in the college's accreditation library for use in future institutional self-evaluation work.
The Commission will receive a summary report on institutional performance based on fall 2012 reports at its January, 2013 meeting, and a second summary report on institutional performance based on spring 2013 reports at its June meeting. The Commission may use an institution's report to take action to require follow-up for purposes of assuring institutional compliance with Accreditation Standards.
Please contact our offices if you have any questions about this report by calling Vice President Krista Johns or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, as always, please feel free to contact me as well at email@example.com.
