    What we looked at:

    The Secretarial Science certificate focused on all PSLOs. Listed below are the results for each of the PSLOs.

    What we found:

    • PSLO #1: Assessment based on BK 095, BK096, and BU099b
      • 77 out of 120 students or 64% passed with a "C" or better.
    • PSLO #2: Assessment based on CA100s, CA101s, and BU099b
      • 46 out of 53 students or 87% passed with a "C" or better.
    • PSLO #3: Assessment based on BU095 and BU099B
      • 33 out of 36 students or 86% passed with a "C" or better.
    • PSLO #4: Assessment based on ESL/BU095, ESL/BU096, SS100, and BU99b
      • 182 out of 223 or 82% passed with a "C" or better.
    • PSLO #5: Assessment based on BU098 and BU099b
      • 46 out of 57 students or 81% passed with a "C" or better.

    What we are planning to work on:

    • Review all SS course outlines and revise, if needed, ESL/BU 095/96 or relevant course outlines

    Recommendations for students:

    1. Students should take CA095 or CA100 before taking BK095/BU095 since computer aided exercises were not fully utilized due to students’ inability for computer application skills.
    2. Recommended changing textbook for BK since accounting for merchandising corporation is too challenging for certificate level students.
    3. Textbook for ESL/BU 095/096 not appropriate for ESL work. Fall 2012 instructor recommended deleting SLOs 2.1 and 2.2
