PSLO Assessment Report Summary

What we looked at:

The AAS Telecommunication Program assessment focus on PSLOs 5 and 6. Students performance were assessed while performing the assigned task in telecommunication worksite and on workshop hands-on activity using various communication circuits and devices. Listed below are the results for each of the PSLOs.

What we found:

The Target PSLO 5 and 6 are at least 70% of the student should be able to get a grade of “C” or better and able to attend On-the-job training at telecommunication industry and troubleshoot telecommunication cables and system devices.

  • VEE250 (Cooperative Education) - 10 out of 10 or 100% of the students got 'C' or better on their final grade and able to practice a career in telecommunication and IT facilities by attending on-the-job training.
  • VTE 260 (Microwave) 7 out of 7 or 100% of the students got “C” or better on their final grade and able to troubleshoot microwave communication system using NIDA system trainer.
  • VTE 261 (Fiber optics) 8 out of 8 or 100% of the students got “C” or better on their final grade and able to terminate, connect and test fiber optics cable using industry standard connectors and equipment.
  • VTE 280 ( Telephone system) 8 out of 8 students or 100% of the students got “C” or better on their final grade and able to troubleshoot telephone set using telephone module kit board.
  • VTE 281 (Cellphone servicing) 10 out of 10 or 100% of the students got “C” or better on their final grade and able to troubleshoot hardware and software related problem of cellular phone.
  • VEE 230 (Radio Communication) 8 out of 8 or 100% of the students got :C” or better on their final grade and able to troubleshoot radio communication circuit problem.

What we are planning to work on:

  • Continuously and expands the list of industry partners in telecommunication to help and support the program learning outcome improvement to meet the industry skills demand to ensure students graduate employability.
  • Attend seminars and workshop in related to the current trends of communication system such as telephone switch network, LTE technology, modern microwave communication system, Cellular phone technology troubleshooting and repair.
  • Convert VTE 281 (Cellular phone servicing) as technical requirement course instead of elective course.

Recommendations for students:

Students must finish all the 100 technical courses in the program with the grade of “C” or above to make sure the success rate of passing in 200 level courses of the program it also include English and math courses.

They should also be proficient in reading diagrams, use of testing instruments and measurements, check and test active and passive electronic components, and must have quality soldering skills.
