PSLO Assessment Report Summary

What we looked at:

The Refrigeration and Air Conditioning certificate assessment focused in all the PSLO’s of the program as mentioned above. Below are the results for each of the PSLOs.

What we found:

  • PSLO1: Safety
    14 out of 14 students or 100% got a “C” or better as their grade when given the different types of refrigerants, safety goggles, hand gloves and manifold gauge, the students measured the standing pressure of each gasses and demonstrated safety procedures in handling high pressure refrigerants.
  • PSLO2: Hand and Power Tools
    11 out of 11 students or 100% got a grade of “C” or better as their grade when given a refrigerator, vacuum pump, manifold gauge, digital micron gauge, and toolkit, the students performed the steps in evacuating a refrigeration unit.
  • PSLO3: Preventive Maintenance
    11 out of 11 students or 100% got a grade of “C” or better as their grade when given an air conditioning unit, hand tools and supplies, the students performed general cleaning of the unit.
  • PSLO4: Electrical Wiring
    14 out of 15 students or 93% got a grade of “C” or better as their grade when given a refrigerator, room air conditioner, multi-meter and electrical components, the students rewired the units as specified in the schematic diagram.
  • PSLO5: Troubleshooting and Repair
    14 out of 15 students or 93% got a grade of “C” or better as their grade when given a defective room air conditioner, refrigerator, recovery machine, vacuum pump, system analyzer and supplies, the students diagnosed the defects and repaired it with workmanship.
  • PSLO6: Trade Participation
    11 out of 11 students or 100% got a “C” or better as their grade when they were grouped by two’s and assigned to perform refrigeration and air conditioning unit servicing into the campus facilities and in the community with confidence.

What we are planning to work on:

  • Organize an advisory council for the program.
  • Distribute student refrigeration toolkit in every fall semester.
  • Maintain the strong collaboration between the Office of Environment and Emergency Management (OEEM) of the national government and the college by following the MOU signed by both parties.
  • The existing Pohnpei State refrigeration technicians association shall recognize the RAC students club.

Recommendations for students:

  • Refrigeration and Air Conditioning curriculum must be modified as soon as possible to produce a globally competitive worker in the field.
  • To increase student success in refrigeration program, they must finish their general education courses requirement before taking major refrigeration technical courses.
  • Students must focus on their technical courses and allot ample time for hands-on training.
  • All students in this program should be an active member of the Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Students Club (RACSC) to promote awareness in the trade.
  • The students shall attend and actively participate in all FSM-RAC association projects and activities.
