Part II. Analysis of the Program


The large number of majors has kept a favorable ratio of number of majors to replacement positions. The number of part time students continues to be around 50%.  The increase in FTE enrollment has steadily grown despite the high number of part time students.


The File Rate fell below 75% which contributes to the Cautionary call. The fill rate drop may be due to the fact that four more classes were offered which reduced the Fill Rate for each class.

The ratio of majors to full time faculty also caused the Cautionary call because of the high number of majors and only one full time faculty member. Until an additional full time faculty member is approved, additional release time should be awarded to the present full time member.


All three indicators: ratio of degrees to majors, degrees to replacement positions, and persistence are all just below the Healthy threshold.  Other indicators remain good: Successful Completions remains high (87%) and the degrees awarded were three higher than the previous year.  This is not a large improvement, but shows a fairly stable outcome. 


Part III. Action Plan

The program is without a full time instructor.  Interviews are in process and it is hoped that one is selected prior to the Spring 2013 semester.  In addition to teaching, this is a program director position.


The departing program director left a recommended curriculum change that appears accurately describe the present deficiencies in the program. This recommendation needs to be reviewed by the Advisory Committee and the experienced lecturers.


One of the recommended changes is to create distance education courses that would benefit many of the part time students and students living on the outer islands.


A computer course that uses police and security  applications has never been implemented.

Part IV. Resource Implications

Additional funding is not needed for the next Academic Year.

Program Student Learning Outcomes

For the 2012-2013 program year, some or all of the following P-SLOs were reviewed by the program:

this year?
Program Student Learning Outcomes


• Use critical observation skills.


• Communicate with a diverse population in a culturally sensitive manner


• Assess and respond appropriately to potential conflict situations.


• Write clear and accurate reports.


• Maintain a drug free lifestyle


• Maintain a drug free lifestyle


Develop Administration of Justice career plans.


• Practice within the legal/ethical parameters of the Justice profession

A) Evidence of Industry Validation

Approximately three years ago the Advisory Committee approved the Program SLOs


NOTE:  SLO #6 Should read: "Work independently and interdependently to accomplish shared professional outcomes"

B) Expected Level Achievement

Course and Program SLOs were assessed using knowledge surveys.  An arbitrary criteria was established to determine if SLOs were met.  Data Analysis and conclusions reached can be found on a separate document located at:

C) Courses Assessed

Three courses were assessed:  AJ 101, 221, and 224.


It should be noted that all courses have assigned SLOs.  Course SLOs have been mapped to Program SLOs to ensure adequate course SLOs are achieved in order for the student to in turn achieve the desired Program SLOs.  The mapping diagrams are found at the following URL:


D) Assessment Strategy/Instrument

Both Program and Course SLOs were used knowledge survey instruments.  Numbers were crunched and charts created using Excel spreadsheets

E) Results of Program Assessment

All Program SLOs were met.  No weaknesses were noted.


AJ 101 had one Course SLO that fell below the established criteria.  Course, syllabus and delivery content will be reviewed.
