What is the Need/Assessment?: 

SAC Co-Coordinators wanted to discuss:  learning outcomes in Canvas, data dashboards, and how to reflect on student learning through Program Review and CATS.

Describe the necessity for this change: 

There has not been a CATS submission since Spring 2022.   SAC Co-Coordinators want to encourage student learning reflections with assessment practices.

Describe what will be (or was) implemented to affect change: 

SAC Lunch and Learn was an opportunity to review: Canvas learning outcomes, review ILO data dashboards, give feedback, and reflect on their students' learning through CATS or Program Review (Assessment Plan). After the data dashboard presentation, participants collaborated and shared feedback about how their divisions use the dashboards. The nineteen participants were able to have a space to discuss the data dashboard and begin a CATS with CTL laptops. 

Interpret, compare and describe the results of the change: 

Nineteen participants collaborated in small groups with discussion questions.  Discussion questions included: What is working well?, What are challenges with the data dashboards? The feedback included: Learning outcome rubrics are too general, How do we assess learning outcomes without a Canvas course?, Course competencies vs. CLOs (4 point scale vs. grades). Each group shared with large group their feedback on poster paper.  

After analyzing the information, what are the next steps?: 

Next steps include:  evaluating the timeframe for SAC Lunch and Learns to allow more time for CATS writing, reviewing dashboard feedback with OPIE and SAC, and creating more SAC events to review data dashboards and reflect on student learning from the data dashboards. 


To improve student learning reflections through CATS and Program Review (Assessment Plan).
