    What we looked at:

    The Agriculture & Natural Resources Management Program assessment focused on PSLO 1. Listed below are the results for the PSLO.

    What we found:

    1. 75% of students passed the posttest demonstrating an understanding of how human choices influence the relationship between living beings, their surroundings, and the quality of life.

    What we are planning to work on:

    Reduce target to 70% and focus more on the subjects that the students lack knowledge in. Also adapt the pre-test so it reflects the courses better.

    Recommendations for students:

    • Take advantage of advertised tutoring opportunities with the math/science division
    • Take advantage of your ANR instruction office hours and see them if you need assistant beyond the classroom.
