(AY 2015-2016)

Program Student Learning Outcomes(PSLOS)

At the completion of Buidling Maintenace & Repair Program the student will be able to:

  1. Identify safety and occupational health requirements in the building industry.
  2. Use competently specified hand and power tools for air-conditioning, carpentry, electrical, landscaping, and plumbing trades.
  3. Perform basic hand skills in air-conditioning, electrical and plumbing systems to a given specification.
  4. Perform basic hand skills in maintaining buildings and grounds.
  5. Interpret information from blueprint drawings.
  6. Participate in the building maintenance profession.


PSLO Assessment Report Summary

What we looked at:

Courses offered from Fall 2015 to Spring 2016 of Building Technology (BT) Program assessment focused on PSLO’s 7, 8, 9, 11 & 12. During these semesters, the students’ competency was assessed on PSLO 11 & 12 (PSLO’s 1 to 6 was assessed during their certificate program). The table below shows the total number of students registered and the descriptive summary of results for each course.

  • 100% of the students achieved a 'C' or better and were able to identify and interpret basic solid state electronic components based on written and hands-on experimentation worksheets in VEE 110 (Discrete Devices I), using the NIDA-CAI as a tool for assessment.
  • 100% of the students achieved a 'C' or better and were able to identify and interpret basic solid state electronic components based on written and hands-on experimentation worksheets in VEE 222 (Discrete Devices II), using the NIDA-CAI as a tool for assessment.
  • 100% of the students achieved a 'C' or better and were able to show success in demonstrating basic knowledge and troubleshooting motors using performance worksheet and Simutech Troubleshooting Skills report in VEE 266 (Rotating Machinery).
  • 100% of the students achieved a 'C' or better and were able to show success in demonstrating basic knowledge and troubleshooting of motor controls using performance worksheet and the Simutech Troubleshooting Skills report in VEM 240 (Industrial Wiring).

What we are planning to work on:

Modify Building Technology major in Construction Electricity program based on current competencies in-demand for an Electrical technician’s qualification. These will include modification of PLO’s with improvement linkage to CSLO’s and by inclusion of Solar PV technology into BT program. Lessen contact hours in academic requirements (GenEd course) and increase contact hours in hands-on/practical courses. Recommend a new course to replace Discrete Devices I & II to focus on theorems and applications applicable to electrical trades. Also include in the program, student industrial immersion (OJT) to practice and enhance mastery of their learned skills. Propose articulation of BT courses with regional institutions such as PCC, GCC and HCC to recognize mutual benefits of course articulation and transfer of course credits between these institutions. Continue collaboration with stakeholders (advisory council for construction trades) to give inputs on course SLO’s improvement and to prepare students for industry skills certification.

Recommendations for students:

Students must have a grade of "C" or better in Math and English courses to help students become proficient to meet the technical course work in Building Technology. Likewise, students should also satisfactorily meet the prerequisite of each course in the program to assure program completion in two years.
