Part II. Analysis of the Program

Demand Indicators:

Due to the economy, the Unhealthy rating is due to the low New and Replacement positions (County Prorated) positions (5), compared to the high Number of Majors (62).  The County positions have fallen 88% since last year and reflect the continuing low number of construction related jobs. 

Through the SSH Program Majors in Program Classes show a drop compared to last year, when calculated with the drop in Number of Majors, it exceeds last year's ratio by 23% (10.68 SSH/DM vs. 13.96 SSH/DM).

 

Efficiency Indicatiors:

Average Class Size shows a healthy 17.8 with an 89% Fill Rate.  This is indicative of the popularity and demand for the program.

 

Effectiveness Indicators:

Out of the three formulas that determines the health call, only the second benchmark; Unduplicated Degrees/Certificates Awarded divided by New and Replacement Positions (County Prorated) was not healthy. Again, as explained in the Demand Indicators, the number of available jobs has fallen significantly, and is not within the program's control. 

 

Distance Education:

The EIMT Program does not offer any Distance Education classes. 

 

Perkins IV Core Indicators:

IPI Technical Attainment:  Due to the rigorous curriculum and intangible nature of electricity, some students cannot satisfactorily complete the program.

4PI Student Placement:  Referring once again, to available jobs, student placement is difficult in the present economy and can only improve as the economy improves.

5PI Nontraditional Participaton: Continually, the participation of women in any construction oriented program has been limited by the low percentage of female employment  numbers in this segment.  Until this changes, or other, related applications of the EIMT training broadens, participation by women will be minimal.

 

 

  

.

Part III. Action Plan

EIMT Program's overall Cautionary rating is due to the Unhealthy rating in the Demand Indicator portion.  The majority of concerns highlighted in the health call ratings are based on the employment opportunities of the graduating student.  The state of the economy dictates everything from declared majors to job placement. 

The EIMT Program will continue to provide comprehensive instruction to provide students with entry level job skills, as well as conscientiously update and revisit sections as suggested by its Advisory Council.

1.) New Pickup Truck Quad Cab 4 X 4 wheel drive with racks  Need to transport EIMT students (cap 20 students) & necessary materials to Model Home DHHL Project.  Currently EIMT only has one assigned GMC 4X4 old run down truck that only sits 5-6 average size students.  We usually have a full enrollment of 20 students.  The dilapidated truck is close to be disposed within the next forthcoming 2-3 years.  $ 42,000.00

C) Courses Assessed

EIMT 20 Spring 2012

D) Assessment Strategy/Instrument

On February 12, I had invited five assessors to come down to the Model Home located at Pakele Lane.  The rubric was a little vague, not too directed on one particular artifact, due to my error of viewing the overall whole Model Home as being the targeted artifact.

NOTE:  Please see Above Rubric Template in "Evidence of industry Validation" section.

 Categories were:

1.)  Interpret & comply with E-1 Prints           EIMT PLO's Met #4   SLO's #5              (All 5 Approved "Meets Industry Standards")

       E-1 Prints are the Electrical Blueprint that the previous EIMT cohort students produced under EIMT's direction, in compliance with National Electrical Code 2011 Book.

 

2.)  Safety Conduct Applications & Awareness  EIMT PLO's Met #2 &  #8   SLO's #1 & #9   ( All 5 Approved "Meets Industry Standards")

      Assessors were present on site & observed all students working on Model Home Project.

 

3.)  Compliance with NEC & local Code Standards       EIMT PLO'S Met #3 & #7   SLO's #3 & #8    (All 5 Approved "Meets Industry Standards")

       Assessors inspected the rooms throughout the stucture to see if students were compliant in following National Electric Code 2011 compliance & Electrical Blueprint sheet E-1.

4.)  Workmanship:  Layout of boxes & equipment       EIMT PLO's Met #1 & #4    SLO's #3 & #5      (All 5 Approved "Meets Industry Standards")

      Observation was noted in assessors check sheet to see if students were adept in the workmanship criteria.

 

5.)  Integrate Car, HVACR with Elect. & Maint.         EIMT PLO's Met #5                (4 Approved "Meets Industry Standards")  One did not consider the

                                                                                                                                       bath vent duct as a Venting HVACR install.)

 

6.)  Routing of wires for planning & take off's    EIMT PLO's Met # 6 & #8        (All 5 Approved "Meets Industry Standards").

             Observations were made as students were about 85-90% complete with the double wall rough in.  All assessors graded  with the highest positive grading.

 

7.)  Service Equipment & grounding system     EIMT PLO's Met #7         SLO's #6, #7 & #10   (All 5 Approved "Meets Industry Standards").

                The artifacts were a Uffer "Concrete Encased Grounding Electrode" exiting out of the slab, along with the Temporary Pole located on the front of the property.  All assessors were satisfied with the artifacts on site.

 

8.)  PV System Workmanship & Code Compliance   EIMT PLO's Met #1,3,4,5 & 7    

(PV System at that time had not been installed, so N/A was checked off for response in this box.)

F) Other Comments

Efforts to incorporate both Program Learning Outcomes along with Student Learning Outcomes were developed & presented into the Rubric used for assessment this semester.  The EIMT Program tries to use different assessors for different projects to gain a broad perspective from industry, which will give the EIMT program insight to continue on the right path of instruction.     

G) Next Steps

The EIMT Program will continue to enhance & develop more in depth rubrics to capture the true intent of instruction to be extracted from our students.  The EIMT program is committed to continue to participate in the DHHL Model Home Capstone Project.  In which contains many valuable facets of Electrical Instruction that will need to be clarified into better categories for rubric presentation & assessment measures.  EIMT Program will confer with Advisory members to be kept up to date to industry demands.
