Student learning regarding technical knowledge of tennis (SLO #1) met expectation. Group settings are more conducive to strategic and broad-stroke tennis methodology, than individual work on the fundamentals of technique. It would be benificial to have film equipment and correlating tennis video programs (apps) to relate to individual technique. I also consider that managing the class for more one-on-one time with each student would have a positive impact on a comprehensively learning the technical knowledge of tennis. Regarding tactical strategies for singles and doubles (SLO #2), student learning exceeded expectations. Singles and doubles strategies including shot selection, court-positioning, communication and philosophical methodologies were effectively transmitted to the students. Student learning in this area was so proficient that it led to individuals taking control over learning and development of tactical methods. Outside study and film work were effective tools at expanding knowledge of tactics. Again, film tools and tennis software or applications would enhance the efficiency of student learning. Student learning exceeded expectations enhancing participation and contributions to the team experience (SLO #3). Through structured team activities (fundraising, team-building activities, competition and travel, etc.) students learned the benefits of positive communication, individual and team responsibility, and hard work. These qualities extended beyond the court, as students took an active role in each other's success in the classroom and in competition. Students also learned the value of sportsmanship and character development.

Students did well with the learning tools presented.  The curriculum, assignments, and e-learning tools required self-initiative.  Rigor is at an acheiveable, but challenging level.

The course is meeting the objectives as stated in the syllabus.

I would recommend using the 2017 step by step course book that comes with interactive learning modules

In general, students met the SLOs for this course.  However, the risk of equipment failure may impact the ability of future students to successfully meet the SLOs.  Due to equipment failure this semester, student work was lost.

Equipment failure could impact student safety and  the ability to offer this course.

Essentially, students are able to identify, define, and label the conventions of language and sentence patterns; however, they are a work in progress at demonstrating their skills. When they demonstrate sentence patterns, they must use the writing process to be successful and use campus resources, such as the Reading and Writing Center (RWC), peer review and collaboration, as well as one on one counseling in office hours.

Through assessment students thoroughly comprehended the necessities to transfer to the four-year level as a student-athlete. Students displayed the knowledge pertaining to baseball fundamentals, as well as sportsmanship that translates to intercollegiate athletics at four year institutions. Using critical thinking skills developed through practice situations provided the confidence and successful outcomes in actual game settings. Student-athletes showed their ability to execute game plans, and strategies that are pertinent to successful outcomes in game settings. Their willingness and ability to compete at their highest capability was developed through practice settings, and was displayed through in game situations as athletes showed their ability to adapt to a variety of in game situations. Each student athlete showed the ability, maturity, and willingness to be a productive member of society and representative of the institution.  

No college wide implications.

Through multiple avenues of instruction, students were able to understand the complicated strategies of Internet marketing, and how to analyze results of marketing efforts. By using written assignments, weekly quizzes, a project that involves peer review, discussion boards, and a final exam, as well as optional online resources and recent events news postings, students were provided a variety of learning formats through which to discover which path worked best for them. In particular, it was encouraging to see students using new vocabularly learned in the glossary term assignments to concisely express their ideas on essays and the project, and many students report that they knew of the concept but did not until now know the proper term to use. The high quality of the work and the high rate of students doing well through the end of the semester for an online course are very encouraging.

Students effectively learned how to take part in an ensemble in the theatre and gained skills that will be helpful in a professional theatre setting.

This would require purchasing of new equipment and scheduling of more student work hours, as well as addition of FTE.

The outcomes from this class were achieved by providing instruction both in writing and by example with demonstrations along with students' ability to complete projects online allowing for hands-on participation. The usage of D2L, SIMnet, and online lesson simulations allowed students to work independently outside of class time and allowed for immediate feedback on projects. The final exam was an integrated project similar to previous projects completed during class.

The course sequence for certificates and degrees would have to be revised.

90% of the students felt they are able to perform the skills of volleyball at an intermediate level.  However, only about 70% felt comfortable being able to implement a game plan in competition.  They understand the terminology and the basic offenses and defense, but don't understand the application.

No college wide implications.

Testing reflects student ability in recalling information about the history, development, genres and American and International film movements very well. Assigning a specific paper to discuss the work of a minority director appeared to both get students thinking about minority voices in cinema as well as appreciate the contribution made by female and minority film makers to the overall language of film. The final paper assignment in my classes is designed to have students develop a research question and look for ways films and film styles are connected. This seems to be a popular option with the students which gets them to use what they've learned in class throughout the course.

The course supports both Radio, Television and Film Production majors and Film and Media Studies majors in their understanding and knowledge of the history of film and important movements over the last 100+ years.

The outcome assessment provided valuable information to me about the athletes's season goals. I was able to determine through their work and through observation that most reached their goal or they are approaching their goal. 

Through the Women's Swim Team community connections are being made, confident women are emerging, and "ready for the real world" students/employees are developed.

I learned that the students exceeded expectations for SLO number 1. They met expectations for SLO number 3 but I think we can improve on this. I couldn't really determine SLO number 3 because most of the time the students only had 2 swimmers in a lane so they really didn't have to understand or implement proper strategies for groups swimming.

We would have to update our Prof and add some SLO's to the curriculum. We would have to purchase the correct equipment and software as some of this new technology is not water proof but some are. We would have to be trained on how to use it and then incorporate it into class.
