SLO Challenge Goes to PERB

David Clemens

The November-December issue of CCA Advocate contains a front page story on how Lassen Community College is challenging Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) with the California Public Employment Relations Board:

The case stems from a charge brought by the Lassen College Faculty Association against the Lassen Community College District in December when the college administration unilaterally changed its policy and started requiring certificated employees to submit a student assessment plan whenever they submit a course syllabus. When the administration topped off the demand by proposing that faculty be evaluated based on its Student Learning Outcomes, (SLOs) the chapter took the matter to PERB.
