Business, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Real Estate ECON 100

The class went largely as expected.  Most of the students took it as a prepatory course for standard economics courses.  It appears that those who successfully completed the course were more confident and interested in taking additional economics courses.

Mathematics and Statistics MATH 402

The students who attended classes regular, studied the textbook, and did their homework did great in this class.  A couple of students have had a habit of repeating classes.  At very beginning of this class, those students may have had the thought of ready to repeat this class, and they didn't seem serious this semester.  A few students lack prerequisite skills, one in particular definitely doesn't belong to Calculus III.

Students generally did better on the early material on the final exam.  Some students did pretty well on the last chapter test but didn't do so well on the corresponding part on the final exam.  I am not sure what that means.   Some students have done well enough before the final exam to pass the course with as low as 30% on the final exam.   A new grading scheme may be developed to encourage students do well on the final exam.

Accounting ACCT 341

Changing this to a hybrid has had a positive influence in outcomes.

There is no change in college facility requirements but this change will require a slight increase in FTE and accounting degrees and certificates will need to be revised once thios approval is made district wide.

Computer Info Science: Database & Programming CISP 352

Students demonstrated the ability to Design and implement SQL to include data definition language, data manipulation language, and data query language constructs. Students work showed that they understood how to design and implement queries for information extraction from databases, including sorting and grouping data, subqueries and views.  Student also were able to implement medium to complex difficulty queries in SQL using procedures, packages and triggers.  Student did however find it harder to grasp the concept of multi-table joins.  More practice problems and a dedicated lecture on this topic helped students do better in this area.  Moving forward, one additional focus topic on JOINS needs to be added to the course lecture sequence.

Business, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Real Estate RE 300

I taught two sections of this course, one on-ground and one online. With the on-ground class, I'm satisfied with results of weekly quizzes and pleased with class discussion regarding various real estate concepts. The intervew project was also a success and I'm satisfied with the results.  As for the online class, I am satisfied with weekly quiz results and the interview project participation.

I was satisfied with the responses in the discussion boards to different case studies. I'm also satisfied with general outcome of weekly quizzes.  I also have a class project in which students interview a local real estate professional and I was pleased with the response I got there. I'm always looking for ways to engage students further.

Building Inspection Technology BIT 130

Additional time should be spent on vocabulary familiarization.  Many of the students do not have extensive experience in construction. 

The plans that are used in the class are somewhat out of date.  New plans that reflect current codes and practices should provided for the students.

Building Inspection Technology BIT 101

Although my review of the IRC is comprehensive and thorough and I provide hundreds of questions that help to prepare students for the ICC Certified Residential Inspector exam, many students have chosen not to apply for the exam this semester.   The typically expressed concern is that they do not feel ready for the exam.  I have had classes with certification rates as high as 65%.  I believe that to date this semester only 2 students out of 25 have passed the exam. 

I will continue to encourage students to earn certifications so that they are able to apply for positions in the field of building inspection.
