Program Student Learning Outcomes Assessment
(AY 2015-2016)

Program Student Learning Outcomes(PSLOS)

At the completion of Carpentry Program the student will be able to:

  1. Identify safety and occupational health requirements in the carpentry trade.
  2. Use competently specified hand and power tools.
  3. Perform basic hand skills in constructing projects to a given specifications.
  4. Interpret construction information from blueprint drawings.
  5. Participate in the construction industry.

PSLO Assessment Report Summary

What we looked at:

The Carpentry certificate assessment focused on (PSLO #1) the awareness and importance of safety and occupational health in the construction trade and (PSLO #3) familiarizing and improving their hand skills in building projects according to specifications. Listed below are the results for each of the PSLOs.

What we found:

  • The results of the written and practical exams showed that 11 out of 12 students or 92% got a "C" or better in wearing the right personal protective equipment (PPE) like safety helmet, safety mask, safety gloves, safety glasses, safety shoes, and proper clothing during hands-on practices.
  • The results of the written and practical exams showed that 9 out of 10 students or 90% got a "C" or better in estimating materials needed for floors, walls, ceilings, and roofs from a set of blueprints.

What we are planning to work on:

  • Continue to make it mandatory for all carpentry students to use PPE for all lab periods.
  • Continue to provide more hands-on practicals for students to practice and improve their hand skills in building projects using given specifications.

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 completion. Recruit only students that are interested in carpentry and willing to complete the program.

AP Full Official:Certificate of Achievement in Carpentry

Campus: Pohnpei Campus

Completed by: Xavier Yarofmal

AP Review Submission Date:March 2014

AR Review Cycle: Fall2012-Spring2013

  1. Program Goals

    1. Identify safety and occupational health requirements in the carpentry trade.
    2. Use competently specified hand and power tools.
    3. Perform basic hand skills in constructing projects to a given specifications.
    4. Interpret construction information from blueprint drawings.
    5. Participate in the construction industry.
  2. Program History

    This carpentry program was approved for implementation in 1998.The average number of enrollees is 10 students each semester.

    • 2001-first four graduates
    • 2002-only one graduate
    • 2003-again, only one graduate
    • 2010-another one graduate
    • 2013-three graduates

    All the above are based on Pohnpei Campus only.

    Significant milestones :

    In 2011-2012 students were involved in various activities such as building tables, benches, book selves, picture/map frames, and etc. for the college as well as the local community. In 2012 students were also involved in a project with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) through the coordinator for the USAID-FEMA Disaster Mitigation, Response, and Reconstruction Program. They build a sample typhoon-resistant frame structure to be used on the outer islands.

  3. Program Descriptions

    Students will be introduced to the techniques and methodology of component construction involving cabinet setout, sub-floor, wall construction, roofing and interior finishing.

  4. Program Admission Requirements

    High school graduate or GED certificate holder. Applicants must take the COM-FSM Entrance Test (COMET) and be accepted by the Admissions Board. Acceptance by the Admissions Board is based on the applicant’s score on the COMET and other criteria as defined by the Admissions Board.

  10. Analysis and Recommendation

    Finding
    This section provides discussion of information discovered as a result of the evaluation such as problems or concerns with the program and what part of the program is working well and meeting expectation.

    1. Every semester we encounter scarcity of financial resources.
    2. Low graduation rate due to students having difficulty in passing the MS 104.
    3. Low enrollment at Pohnpei Campus compare to other Certificate Programs.

    Recommendation:

    This section provides recommendations from the program on what to do to improve or enhance the quality of program and course learning outcomes as well as program goals and objectives. This section should also include suggestions that describe how the program might be able to create opportunities for a better program in the future. Some examples are exploring alternate delivery mechanisms, forming external partnerships, or realigning with other programs.

    1. Institutionalized budget for Technology and Trade Division.
    2. Substitute MS 104 to MS 094 because students can hardly pass the MS104.
    3. Seek funding for short term training for instructor.
    4. Include heavy an equipment operator course to lure more students into the program.
    5. Recruit potential students into program so they can complete in a timely manner.
    6. Increase completion rate and graduation rate.
