Institutional Learning Outcomes: The Four Cs

FRAMES Communication Project

Foothill's Rubric Assessment Model for Evaluating SLOs
The purpose of FRAMES is to improve student learning on campus. Using Foothill's four institutional student learning outcomes (SLOs), teams of faculty volunteered to design assessment rubrics to test student artifacts for evidence of Critical Thinking, Computation, Communication, and Community/Global Consciousness. The following narrative is about the development and implementation of the Communication assessment rubric.

FRAMES: Communication Phase I (completed)

Over the course of 2007-08, the team of faculty from Physical Education, History, Language Arts, and Communication developed the current draft Communication rubric. During 2008-09, the team will use student artifacts to continue to finalize and improve the current draft.
