  • PSLO Assessment Report Summary

    What we looked at:

    The Hospitality & Tourism Management Program assessment focused on PSLO 7. Listed below is the result for the PSLO.

    What we found:

    • PSLO#7: Only 62% passed with ratings above satisfactory on written exams measuring listening skills and word and phrase comprehension. 55% of students rated exemplary, good, or satisfactory on oral and written quizzes measuring listening skills and comprehension of basic words and phrases for lodging, food service and tourism provider guest service.

    What we are planning to work on:

    • Modification of course structure and outline.

    Recommendations for students:

    Students are strongly recommended to take FL120 before (or at the same time) they take HTM220 since they can utilize Japanese phrases that they have learned in a practical situation.
