    What we looked at:

    The Carpentry certificate assessment focused on (PSLO #2) competent use of carpentry tools and (PSLO #4) reading/ understanding of construction drawing or blueprints. Listed below are the results for each of the PSLOs.

    What we found:

    • The results of the written and practical exams showed that 12 out of 15 students or 80% got a "C" or better in using carpentry tools competently.
    • The results of the written and practical exams showed that 11 out of 11 students or 100% got a "C" or better in reading construction drawings.

    What we are planning to work on:

    • Provide more specialized carpentry tools so students will be familiar with them.
    • Provide different kinds and sizes of blueprints for the students to be familiarize themselves with. Provide enough copy of each print for every student to work with.

    Recommendations for students:

    Students must follow the Carpentry program suggested schedule in the COM-FSM General Catalog in order to complete their study in a timely matter. Students enrolled in this program as their major of study must remain in it until completing.
