Part II. Analysis of the Program

Demands Indicators

The health indicator will always show unhealthy if the new and replacement position (County prorated) remains at one, and only the County positions are counted.  However, the dealerships, specialty shops and independent repair shops are hiring our students.  So the number read that there are 16 students per 1 job opening a year in the County.  The number of Native Hawaiian majors is at 6 up from 2010-11 and the full time students are up 6%.

Efficiency Indicators

The fill rate dipped down from 100% to 72%.  However, the majors to FTE is healthy.  Average class size down but efficiency indicators remain healthy.

Effectiveness Indicators

Although effectiveness remains cautionary, persistence is up by 6.2%.  Unduplicated degrees/certificates awarded is up by one from 2010-11 and up 50% from 2012-13.

Perkins IV Core Indicators

There were no nontraditional participation.

2

Yes
2. The ability to identify an auto body repair problem, troubleshoot and/or solve the problem (including cost estimates) by applying logic, math or through research in the appropriate resource whether in print or electronic format. •Observe students in lab on how they reason with problems and how the student repairs the problem area. Check student estimates of repair order to see appropriate resources, profits and losses, and taxes.

3

Yes
3. The ability to work independently and in teams to diagnose, service, prep, and repair vehicles. •Observe students in lab while working on a project individually or in a group.

4

Yes
4. The ability to demonstrate professionalism through their initiative, efficiency, positive attitude, honestly, and ethics. •Observe students demonstrate the repair process professionally.

5

Yes
5. The ability to work safely and responsibly following all safety and environmental guideline standards for an auto body shop. •Observe students in classroom and lab working safely; properly handling of hazardous materials; safely following environmental guidelines

A) Evidence of Industry Validation

Industry recognizes (I-Car) inter-industry conference on auto collision repair curriculum which we are using and it is based on the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) and National Automotive Technicians Education Foundation (NATEF).  Students are encouraged to take the exam but it’s not mandatory. 

B) Expected Level Achievement

The expected level of achievement is 60%.  The non-program level is at 70%.

C) Courses Assessed

All classes assessed in Fall 2012 ABRP, English, Math, Speech and Physics.

D) Assessment Strategy/Instrument

•Observe students in lab while working on projects. Checking for effective communication and written skills.

•Observe students in lab on how they reason with problems and how the student repairs the problem area. Check student estimates of repair order to see appropriate resources, profits and losses, and taxes.

•Observe students in lab while working on a project individually or in a group.

 •Observe students demonstrate the repair process professionally.

•Observe students in classroom and lab working safely; properly handling of hazardous materials; safely following environmental guidelines

E) Results of Program Assessment

PSLO 1a, 1b:

Students are doing well in the written communication and fair in oral communication.  Local students are brought up talking Pidgin English.

PSLO 2b:

Use appropriate resources. Scores were faily good (print or electronic format).  Example:  Powerpoint presentation where the answers are discussed.  Students do poor in multiple choice type of tests where you read a paragraph then choose an answer.  Due to poor reading habits, they fail these types of exams.

PSLO 3a/4:

We need to work more with counselors to direct students to enroll in proper English and Math courses and make sure that students enroll in these classes.

F) Other Comments

We know more Math and Reading and needed.

G) Next Steps

Next step is to collaborate with English and Math faculty and counselors  to have Math and Reading courses be taught in the ABRP time frame, like team teaching (Culinary Arts).  Most students take Math and English after ABRP classes and by the afternoon, students are bored and cannot comprehend the non-related instructions.
