With this necessity, the semester Fall 1998 saw the emergence of a new academic program offering at COM-FSM’s Business Division, the Associate of Science Degree in Computer Information Systems.

b.DESCRIPTION: The Associate of Science in Computer Information Systems program concentrates on organizational applications of information and communications technology and the development of systems and their management. Students receive a fundamental understanding of programming, web engineering, database designing and networking, which prepare them for high-in-demand careers such as programmers, webmasters, network administrators, systems analysts, etc.

c.MISSION: Associate of Science in Computer Information Systems provides students with a solid foundation in theory and practice of the computer information systems and prepares them to meet the immediate job market needs, adapt themselves to the rapidly evolving computer industry and further their education in a higher degree program. This contributes to the college’s mission of assisting in the development of the Federated States of Micronesia, and to be globally connected.

Comments on Student Learning :

Recommendations: A new textbook that would focus more on RDBMS (Relational Database Management System) practical usage rather than the science of Database Design itself which is more suited for a 4-year course rather than for a 2-year course in a Community College.

Introduction (I), Demonstrate(D)

Comments on Student Learning :

-Despite the low percentage of passers on the final exam, it is still relatively higher compared to the last semester.

Additional observations: The new textbook as per recommendation last two semesters ago did not arrive this semester and even up to this point with all the follow-ups that I made to the bookstore manager. The students therefore have to resort to the power point slides that I gave them and the exercises. Although even with those materials the students could easily pass if they are diligent enough in doing their part.

Comments on Student Learning :

-Looking back at the final exam result, I think I have to make a review

first before doing the final exam, so as to have a higher probability of passers.

Additional observations: The Final exam has tremendously improved compared to the last semester because of the review that I did before the final exam.

Note : 17 out of 19 or 89.47% got C or higher and the lone student who got an ‘F’ grade has already withdrawn from the class.

Recommendations: Probably change textbook to something that has a combination of hardware fundamentals and as well as networking. Many of the students in my last 2 years of teaching in Networking have hard time grasping theoretical concepts in networking specially on not so easy topics.

V.DISCUSSION OF FINDINGS

a. Initial Findings using direct assessments through CLAs (Course Level Assessments)

i.Change of textbook(s) that is/are more appropriate for 2-year Programs

1.Textbook on Networking although a new one still would not fit on learning capability of the students here at the college. Additionally the laboratory part teaches hardware first before networking so normally lecture and hands-on does not parallel together as far as topics are concerned.

Recommendations – 1) A textbook that would focus on hardware and a basic on networking that is more hands-on rather than theoretical. 2) Or a separate hardware class could be offered aside from networking class.

ii.Change of textbooks and/or course outlines that would allow easier transitions to other higher institutions like University of Hawaii and University of Guam to name just a few.

1.Textbook on IS230 or Database Design although is doing alright as far as fitting to the learning capability of the students here in the college but actually does not match content- wise on similar courses that are offered on higher institutions elsewhere like UH and UOG for example. The focus on the current textbook is more on the database software (i.e. MS Access) rather than the science of designing database. However, the challenge is to find a textbook that is mix (and balance as well) on having good focus on the essential contents on database design and that would match the learning capability of

our students here in our College.

Recommendations - 1) A new textbook that is a good mix of database design essentials and more tailored fit to our students capability here in COM. If this happens a change of course outline would also be in order. 2) Just stay with the current textbooks but add some Database Design concepts that are not part of the textbook but essential enough for the student’s learning (this is currently what I am doing right now).

2.Textbook on IS220 or Computer Science and Programming although a programming textbook (using VB.net) is more suited for higher years or is not normally offered as introductory programming language of choice for many schools including UH, UOG (and other US colleges) and even in the Philippines. UH for example uses C++ and UOG uses Java (although recently someone told me that they are now using C++) as introductory programming language. However, many of our students that are taking CIS when they go

abroad to study normally goes to UH.

Recommendation – 1) A new textbook on C++ (or Java) that fits our own need here.
