Please use this site to find information about student learning outcomes (SLO’s) and SLO assessment, as they relate to specific courses, programs, student services, and institutional learning outcomes at Berkeley City College.

Taskstream is the repository for all information about SLOs and SLO assessment at BCC. It contains the most current versions of SLOs for all courses, instructional programs, and student services areas. See the instructions for using Taskstream (on the left) to view SLO’s, assessment results, action plans, and results of action plans.

On this site, you can also find an overview of the slo assessment process and other information about SLO assessments at BCC. To view a short film which gives an overview of the assessment process, including rubric development, check out “An Assessment Film” on the right of this page.

To create or update SLO’s, download and use the form found to the right under “SLO form for courses,” and work with your assessment liaison and department chair.

If you’re interested in continually improving instruction in the classes you teach, please consider using some of the Classroom Assessment Techniques described here.  


Finally, the Teaching and Learning Center (see link on the right) is a powerful tool at BCC for closing the loop on assessments by providing a venue for faculty to collaboratively arrive at and implement action plans related to assessment findings.  The focused inquiry groups (FIGs) are used primarily to develop action plans, and the action plan projects for learning excellence (APPLEs) are used to implement those plans.
