Members of the Quantitative Literacy faculty team, Jonathan Bodrero and Bob Turner, will share information about the process for developing the Passport Learning Outcomes (PLOs) and their accompanying Proficiency Criteria (PC). You will learn how they were able to find alignment across their institutions – where there was easy consensus and where they had to work through the differences. This information should provide a good background for understanding the role of the PC and leading discussions on your campus about determining the congruence of your institution’s/state’s learning outcomes with the PLOs.
