Step-by-Step Guide to PLO Assessment

Program learning outcomes (PLO) assessment is an iterative process of evaluating the extent to which students have developed certain key skills through coursework and learning activities within the program curriculum.

At UCSC, we conduct assessment on a 3-year reporting cycle, where each year is devoted to one major task: Assess (Year 1), Reflect (Year 2), and Improve (Year 3).

This step-by-step guide will provide information and resources to help you on your journey.
