English - Basic Skills [LEGACY] ENGWR 55

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.

Business, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Real Estate MKT 330

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.

Theatre Arts TAP 330

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.

Kinesiology and Athletics TMACT 331

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.

What I learned from my outcomes assessment is that the curriculum as designed is providing the students with the knowledge and skills needed to be proficient in ICD-10 coding.

Journalism/Film and Media Studies FMS 305

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.

Kinesiology and Athletics FITNS 444

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.

The students who are still enrolled in the class are meeting the SLO expectations for the class. Since I got a new and better cell phone, I used video in this class so the students could see how they looked early in the semester, mid-semester and at the end. It was a great tool to use for the students and was easier for them to actually see what they were doing wrong. I will continue to video my students in this class for their benefit.

Sonog 215 is the first clinical experience course.  We learned to assess students in this course no later than midterm rather than end of course.

Students are meeting or exceeding expectation. Students have a firm grasp of concepts and have demonstrated their competence through various methods of evaluation and assignments.

Kinesiology and Athletics SPORT 406

The students were able to learn specific technique such as squat, lunge, and other various movement which help with explosive movements.  These exercises and movements are specifically related to volleyball technique and need. They created their own workout to preform once on their own to continue achieving their fitness goals safely and efficiently.  When using the standard fitness testing all of the students were able to improve their fitness levels.

Students who attended labs and lectures received the higher class scores than those who did not. Industry field trips are important to this class becasue they enhance the student perspective.

Students are able to distinguish right and wrong, along with the critical thinking of a situation and make a decision based on fact not emotion.

Students are not retaining knowledge from Pre-Req class to carry into the computer knowledge base of the course.  I end up re-teaching all aspects of CMT 112 - suggest combining both classes using new CMT 112 text.

Although the student's engage well online - because it is written dialogue versus verbal debate, the interaction is limited.  A verbal dialogu in a face to face class would be more beneficial for students to support their understanding of the interpretation to a law since they all can be so interpretational.

Architectural Design Technology ADT 317

This is a valuable and neccessary course for architects, engineers and construction - the tutorial process is very helpful in developing student understanding of the Revit tools.  One thing that is needed though is updated computer processing power to handle the more current versions of the software.

We will need updated computers with the most current processing for the software we are using.
