Program learning outcomes

Program learning outcomes (PLOs) are overarching skills that are emphasized and reinforced throughout several courses in a specific program; they are measurable statements that define the skills the College expects its students to develop – over and above the general education learning outcomes – by the end of a specific certificate or degree at LBHC. See LBHC's assessment plans and reports and its 2023-24 assessment plan for a list of annual goals and progress regarding the PLO assessment process.
