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.

Business, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Real Estate RE 120

I was generally satisfied with weekly quiz results. I had students interview a real estate professional and was satisfied with the results. Overall it was a successful semester, but I'm continuing to develp course materials and ways to engage students further.

Business, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Real Estate RE 110

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The plans that are used in the class are somewhat out of date.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.

Social Science SOCSC 300

Students' level of application using concepts from many different social science disciplines was strong. It can improve when it comes to some of the examples in their writing in terms of more detail and specifics.

Kinesiology and Athletics SPORT 317

Overall I think the students learned a lot, despite actual game resuls or win/loss record. Skill-wise they definitely grow, so this is indicative of them meeting the expectations of the course.

Kinesiology and Athletics FITNS 390

Overall, this was my favorite class. This is a passion of mine and I feel that the students exceed every expectation in the semester, even for themselves. Many students communicate that the course is life-changing for them.

Interdisciplinary Studies INDIS 313

The course went extremely well.  We used multiple learning modalities and students responded extremely well, particularly for being high school students. Since it is a class for high school students, coming to campus cuts into their high school time. This means I had to use our class time to come to the campus.  Any other time they are in class. Overall, the students are leaving the course with a stronger understanding of course materials and their responsibility for their own learning.

Mathematics and Statistics MATH 30

The students have the ability to perform basic calculations involving real numbers. The students were a little bit weak in translating words and phrases to mathematical expressions. The students were exceptional their ability to complete dimensional analysis. Overall, students showed the ability to recognize patterns and think abstractly about mathematical concepts.

Mathematics and Statistics MATH 120

Overall, the course was average.  Students were a bit weak in radical equations and ratioinal equations. They are also a little bit weak in understanding the concepts of functions. They met my standards of basic computational skills involviing linear and quadratic equations and general concepts involving exponential and logarithmic functions.

Mathematics and Statistics STAT 300

Out of three sections of this course, there is a range of performance, most notably in the fall semester with a large number of incoming freshmen who struggle college-level rigor and self-evaluation of understanding. The Probability is the most difficult in general and helping the students with the overall concept map to compare and contrast is extremely helpful at the end of the unit. These current students embrace technology eagerly, regardless of the specific technology package.

Mathematics and Statistics MATH 144

Overall, the fall semester 8-week condensed MATH 144 has high success after the initial week of acclimation to the double pace of the course.  Four two-week modules works well because it's enough time to engage the students in the topic and evaluate them, but recognizes that the course is really exposure to new concepts rather than deep mastery.

Biology BIOL 352

Most students started with little science and math background, so many basic biological and ecological concepts were challenging to understand and took a significant amount of time. Most students were able to meet expectations, some exceeded expectations, while a few were below expectations. All students with consistent attendance and participation met or exceeded expectations.

None

Kinesiology and Athletics SPORT 366

Overall, the class does its job as far as getting the team into shape, in the workout room, with cardio training and with the general skills of softball. Team was enthusiastic and excited and prepared to come back ready for spring.

Kinesiology and Athletics FITNS 306

The majority of the class is prepared to do the work of the class and most of the students attend regularly. Students give positive feedback about the class and have plans to continue working on the principles of the class.  The majority of the students are eager to learn, try to work out on their own away from class, and give excellent and effort and attitude during the class.

Business, Economics, Finance, Management, Marketing, Real Estate MKT 310

Overall, students definitely reinforce the elements of selling. We do this in a variety of ways including visual aids, videos, literature, etc. Some of it may seem repetitive, but they need this in order to take in the elements of this skill.  Their critical thinking and analysis of problems is ok, but I build this into every single assignment so they have to really think about the elements of each of the aspects part of selling. Basically, students get a good grasp of all of the elements of seliing and sales, although I don't have the expectation that they will develop a full skill set in each area.

Foreign Languages VIET 411

Overall, the students respond well to the course materials. It has been a cumulative experience, since they were able to use materials begun in 401 and 402.  Students definitely more than adequate job in accomplishing the tasks required in the course and in meeting the assessments.
