Institutional Student Learning Outcomes

Oregon Tech’s Institutional Student Learning Outcomes (ISLOs) support Oregon Tech’s institutional mission and core themes. The outcomes and associated criteria reflect the rigorous applied nature of Oregon Tech’s degree programs.

The ISLOs reflect the common expectations about the knowledge, skills, and abilities that Oregon Tech students will acquire and are reflected in the General Education requirements that lay the foundation upon which the major curricula build. Engaging in these ISLOs will support Oregon Tech graduates in developing the habits of mind and behaviors of professionals and lifelong learners.

Oregon Tech students will:
  • communicate effectively orally and in writing;
  • engage in a process of inquiry and analysis;
  • make and defend reasonable ethical judgments;
  • collaborate effectively in teams or groups;
  • demonstrate quantitative literacy;
  • explore diverse perspectives.

Oregon Tech celebrates its revised Institutional Student Learning Outcomes following a year-long review conducted by the Assessment Commission Executive Committee. Reports for the institutional assessment of the original eight ISLOs which began in 2007 can be found in the link from this page. Full descriptions and criteria for assessment, as well as the assessment cycle for the six new ISLOs are also linked from this page.
