CWUP 5-50-030(15) Student Learning Outcomes

Student Learning Outcomes are statements of what a learner should be able to know, do, or value after the successful completion of a program and/or a course. Outcomes focus on the ends rather than means, describe product rather than process, and reflect terminal performance rather than course content. The outcomes are what the department wants each student to achieve each time the course is offered regardless of who the teacher may be. For assessment purposes, learning outcomes should be stated in observable or measurable terms.

Note: The FSCC and the CWU Policy manual recognize only the following types of programs:

Majors
Specializations
Minors
Certificates (Types A-C)

The terms option, emphasis, concentration, and track are not program distinction recognized or defined by the CWU Policies manual and such designations do not appear on transcripts or diplomas.
