Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)–based assessment using Rubrics is a new requirement in the AACSB accreditation for both first-timers and those seeking reaffirmation. In many business schools, the onus of demonstrating that MBA and BBA students have the required business knowledge and capabilities falls on the integrative capstone strategy course, conveniently placed at the end of the program. Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs)–based teaching can be very useful in maintaining consistency in the strategy core course which is usually taught by multiple teachers. SLOs create a common platform while allowing individual teachers a fair amount of flexibility. When teaching is based on clearly defined SLOs, assessment and feedback on these SLOs becomes easy. The process of SLO-based objectives development, assessment and feedback including tools and rubrics development will be demonstrated.
