The Baccalaureate Core Committee and Academic Programs coordinate with units to use the Student Learning Experience (SLE) Survey to gather indirect evidence of student learning in Baccalaureate Core skills categories in the year prior to their review.
Per the Faculty Senate Executive Committee and Baccalaureate Core Committee (decision dated January 2014), SLE (formerly eSET) questions are automatically added to course surveys in the year preceding Baccalaureate Core Category review. Questions are developed by the Baccalaureate Core committee and a SLE administrator places the questions on the appropriate course survey.
For units who want the Bacc Core questions to continue in the SLE survey after the review, they need to inform Academic Programs. For all other courses, the questions are removed after the review.
What Should Instructors Do?
There is no need for instructors to take any action. The questions will be automatically added to the participating courses. Instructors will still be able to add their own questions to course surveys.
The results will be independently processed by Academic Programs and distributed as aggregate data to the Baccalaureate Core Committee, faculty, and unit heads.
