Spokane Community College's English/Foreign Languages faculty actively use SCC's Student Learning Outcomes Abilities for Assessment.
Here are the four abilities that most English instructors will incorporate into their respective course curricula:
Responsibility: Students will demonstrate the ability to
recognize, understand, and accept ownership for learning by self-assessing, demonstrating, and evaluating behaviors that support the learning situation.
Written Communication: Students will demonstrate the ability to
create meaning between themselves and their audience; learn to listen, speak, and write effectively using words, graphics, electronic media, computers,
and quantified data.
Global Awareness: Students will demonstrate
an awareness and appreciation of the world: its scientific complexity, its social diversity, and its artistic variety.
Problem Solving: Students will demonstrate the ability to access,
evaluate, and apply information from a variety of sources and in a variety of contexts.
