School of Applied Technology Electronics Technology

Assessment

The School of Applied Technology Electronics Technology programs conform to the assessment policy defined by the Academic Student Learning Outcomes (ASLO).  Each program and each course lists program or course student outcomes,  the method of assessing these outcomes and which Student Learning Outcome the assessment addresses.
The five College ASLO definitions are:

  1. Acquire substantive knowledge in the discipline of their choice sufficient for further study, and/or demonstrate competencies required by employers to be hired and succeed in the workplace.
  2. Communicate effectively.
  3. Develop quantitative literacies necessary for their chosen field of study.
  4. Think critically.
  5. Develop the knowledge and skills to be civically engaged, and/or to work with others in a professional constructive manner.

Results of these assessments will be maintained to be reviewed periodically by faculty in order to improve teaching and learning. 

Other assessment methods include the use of the DACUM (Develop A CurriculUM) and periodic meetings with the Program Advisory Committee (PAC).  The DACUM process involves reviewing and recommending updates to our curriculum from industry representatives.  The PAC consists of representatives from industry, the college, and government agencies with common goals: incremental curriculum improvement and making our students employable.

For each program and each course, the ASLO requirements are defined as well as the associated competencies and means of assessment. Assessment Report matrices are updated periodically.

Department Assessment Plans and Results are recorded on the College Assessment site.
