In the Interstate Passport program, Proficiency Criteria are examples of assignments faculty currently use for students to show proficiency with the Passport Learning Outcomes (PLOs). Find out how these sample lists were created by faculty, why they are assignments that are not required of Passport participant faculty, and why they are examples and not exhaustive lists. Learn about the role of the PC in creating a common understanding about faculty expectations for student achievement of the PLOs at the transfer level.
