Summary Despite the continued demand for quality measurements, California community colleges have struggled to implement student learning outcomes assessment and document improved student learning. This study examined which college practices were associated with the successful institutionalization of student learning outcomes assessment and which challenges caused the greatest barrier to completing this process. Specifically, the study sought to determine if the "Ten Challenges of Profound Change" suggested by Peter Senge et al in The Dance of Change could explain challenges faced by California community college Business and History disciplines in their effort to institutionalize a student learning outcomes assessment process. This research identified challenges that were most responsible for impeding discipline effort to complete assessment and activities that helped disciplines move past the implementation stage to successful institutionalization of the student learning outcomes assessment process.
