SFCC General Education Assessment (logo)

SFCC's General Education Outcomes are derived from the Association of American Colleges & Universities' LEAP Essential Learning Outcomes:

  • Communication
  • Creative Thinking
  • Critical Thinking
  • Diverse Perspectives
  • Information Literacy
  • Quantitative Literacy

In a two-year cycle, faculty design and administer assessments for two outcomes, and collect and analyze the results in year one. In the second year, faculty use those results to improve their instruction and curriculum while designing and administering assessments for the next three outcomes. Faculty norm and assess randomly-selected, anonymous pieces of students' work using rubrics modified from AAC&U's VALUE Rubrics.
