  • PSLO Assessment Report Summary

    What we looked at:

    The Refrigeration and Air Conditioning certificate assessment focused on basic hand skills in preventive maintenance (PSLO3) and interpret electrical wirings related to refrigeration system (PSLO4). Listed below are the results for each of the PSLOs.

    What we found:

    • 11 out of 15 students or 73% got a 'C' or better as their final grade when given an air conditioning unit, hand tools and supplies. The students performed thorough washing of the fan coil unit and air-cooled condensing unit.
    • 10 out of 13 students or 77% got a 'C' or better as their final grade when given a refrigerator, room air conditioner, multi-meter and electrical components. The students rewired the units as specified in the schematic diagram.

    What we are planning to work on:

    • To teach preventive maintenance and wiring connections of refrigeration and air conditioning system effectively. We also need to have more instructional materials and tools for refrigeration and air conditioning trade.

    Recommendations for students:

    • To increase student success in the refrigeration program, they must finish some of their general education courses requirement before taking major refrigeration technical courses.
