Blooms Taxonomy For SLOsThis presents Bloom’s Taxonomy (original 1950’s, Revised 1990’s). The key verbs in each category, including additional digital verbs are explained. Many of these verbs are excellent for use in writing course or program SLOs.

Guiding Principles of SLO Assessment

This link contains a handout prepared by the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges on “The Guiding Principles of SLO Assessment.” This is a practice guide for community college faculty to understand both the rationale behind Student Learning Outcome assessment and to understand good practices in Student Learning Outcome Assessment.

SLO Glossary
This is a glossary arrived at from research and feedback from faculty and researchers of the California community colleges. This publication (2010) comes out of the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges office. Although meant to address the confusion in the field in the use of common terms for student learning outcomes and assessment, the glossary is not definitive.
