VCSU has adopted a set of 6 Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILO). The table attached in this solution identifies the ILOs and the targeted areas of campus responsible for providing data to inform campus about student success in each area. Assessment data is reported for General Education Learning Outcomes (GELO), Program Learning Outcomes (PLO), and Student Affairs Learning Outcomes (SALO) to assess overall learning effectiveness at VCSU through the ILOs.


The matrix highlights assessment target areas for each of the learning outcomes. Pursuant to the campus-specific technology mission, Technological Skills will be assessed in both academic program areas. Broad Knowledge and Intellectual Skills will be targeted in General Education assessment. Specialized Knowledge, Intellectual Skills, and Applied Learning will be a focus of the academic programs. Personal and Social Responsibility will be targeted in General Education and Student Affairs program assessment.
