SLO Dashboard

To fulfill UF’s mission as a comprehensive learning institution, UF faculty establish student learning outcomes for each academic program that describe what students should know and be able to do when they graduate. Student learning outcomes (SLOs) for each academic program are listed in the UF catalogs.  The faculty assess student achievement of these outcomes and report the results annually to the Office of Institutional Assessment

The University of Florida Student Learning Outcome (UF-SLO) Dashboard is a collaboration between the Office of Institutional Assessment and the Office of Institutional Planning and Research that summarizes SLO achievement at UF. The dashboard provides a transparent, accessible view of SLO performance at the university, college, and program levels. The program faculty provide their program assessment data in their annual reports. Faculty analyze the SLO results and use them to examine the effectiveness of their programs and make changes as needed to improve student learning  At the university level, we use this information to continuously improve institutional assessment processes. 


Student Learning Outcome (SLO). A statement of what students should know and be able to do by the time they complete an academic program. These are in three categories at UF. For undergraduates:  content, communication, and critical thinking. For graduate and professional students: knowledge, skills, and professional behaviors.

Threshold of Acceptability. The acceptable percentage of students who must achieve a Student Learning Outcome for faculty to consider the outcome to be met successfully and for the program to be considered effective. At the University of Florida, the Academic Assessment Committee has set the minimum threshold to be 70%. Faculty analyze their assessment results to determine the percentage of students who met the outcome in any given year, compare that to their threshold of acceptability, and determine it the threshold was met or not met.
