West's Institutional Student Learning Outcomes (ISLOs)

In conjunction with the Student Learning Outcomes (SLO) Committee, faculty and staff will evaluate posters according to the mapped ISLO. The poster session is a valuable tool for students to demonstrate learning at the Program and Institutional Student Learning Outcome levels and a way for the college to assess these levels of learning. These ratings will have no bearing on the judging for prizes.
