3 Construction Management Program Continuous Improvement Plan The purpose of the CMG Continuous Improvement Plan is to have a well-documented process for assessing and evaluating the extent to which program and curriculum improvement is being achieved. Improvement is measured using Goals and Objectives that have been established according to the Mission Statement for the Construction Management Program. The Mission Statement, Goals, and Objectives are similar for all programs within the School of Technology as these were established according to the Michigan Tech University Strategic Plan. The Continuous Improvement Plan requires evaluation of performance for specific goals and objectives that are outlined in the Mission and Goals statement (see next page). Included in the plan is an Outcomes Assessment Program to measure the performance of students and graduates with regard to specific Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) and Program Outcomes (POs). The PEOs describe the attributes that we aspire for our graduates to attain within the first several years following graduation from Michigan Tech. The assessment tools used to measure achievement of these attributes include survey results conducted by the University Career Center, alumni surveys, employer surveys, and input from our Industrial Advisory Board. The POs describe the student outcomes that we expect our CMG students to achieve by the time they graduate from Michigan Tech. These outcomes are evaluated using course assessment, student evaluations, senior exit surveys, and senior project evaluations. The process and the most recent results ( ) are described in detail in this report. 3

10 Construction Management, MTU Program Educational Objectives Construction is a very diversified industry and among the leaders in this vast enterprise is the professional constructor or construction manager. A construction manager has the skills and knowledge, acquired through education and experience, to participate in the planning, design, and construction of a project from inception to completion for the purpose of controlling time, cost, and quality. The Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) listed below describe the attributes that we aspire for our graduates to possess during the first several years following graduation: PEO 1 PEO 2 PEO 3 PEO 4 PEO 5 Graduates will be well prepared for their first position in the construction management field. Graduates will have an understanding of construction science topics as needed for their position. Graduates will have an understanding of project management tasks including estimating, planning and scheduling, construction law, project safety, and other administrative procedures. Graduates will have the communication skills to work effectively as part of a team. Graduates will show a commitment to continuous improvement and life long learning by participating in professional societies, pursuing professional certifications, attending seminars or graduate studies. Program Outcomes In order to achieve the above educational objectives, we expect our students to obtain the following Program Outcomes (POs) by the time that they graduate with their baccalaureate degree: PO 1 An understanding of basic structural design theory for structural steel, timber, reinforced concrete, and masonry. PO 2 An awareness of the basic civil, structural, mechanical, and electrical systems that are incorporated in a building project. PO 3 An awareness of building codes and standards.

12 Assessment Tools The following table shows a summary of the various tools used to collect data in order to assess our Program Outcomes and program Educational Objectives. The table also identifies the items that are assessed by each tool and the frequency of assessment. A brief description of each tool is provided below. Table 2: Summary of Assessment Tools Assessment Tool Responsible for Data Collection/Analysis Frequency Course Assessment Faculty Semester PO Student Rating of Instruction Center for Teaching, Learning, and Faculty Development Semester (All Courses) Senior Exit Survey SOT Staff Semester Senior Project Evaluation Faculty Annually Job Placement University Career Center Semester PEO Alumni Survey SOT Staff Triennially Employer Survey SOT Staff Triennially Input from Industrial Advisory Board Faculty Annually Program Outcome Assessment Tools: Course Assessment All faculty members are required to conduct individual course assessments during each semester. Data gathered during this process is used to make adjustments and improve the student learning experience. The course improvements are summarized each year in a Summary of Program Improvements document. The achievement standard is that 70% of the students perform at a level of 70% or better for each of the course competencies, which are linked to the program outcomes. Examples of assessment methods used are: homework assignments, labs, lab reports, quizzes, exams, performance projects, and the fourth week Preliminary Evaluation Form that is completed by the students. Student Rating of Instruction A standard university instrument administered by the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Faculty Development is used to obtain student feedback regarding instructor performance in the classroom. A sample form is attached as Appendix D. 12

13 Senior Project Evaluation This comprises the student performance (student teams) on the senior capstone project (Project Simulation) as measured by various examiners. The examiners attended the project presentations at the end of the semester and assessed the team performance using a level ranking. The examiners may include CMG faculty members and/or construction industry professionals. Senior Exit Survey Each semester, the graduating students complete a Senior Exit Survey, which is a written questionnaire concerning the Program Outcomes and other pertinent information about their educational experience. The student feedback data is used to identify trends in either the positive or negative direction. The table below shows the relationship between the Program Outcomes and the construction management course(s) that are used to assess achievement of these outcomes. Table 3: Program Outcomes and Course Assessment Program Outcome CMG Course PO 1 CMG 2120, CMG 3250 PO 2 CMG 2110, CMG 2140 PO 3 CMG 3250, CMG 4900 PO 4 CMG 1000, CMG 3200, CMG 3265, CMG 4120, CMG 4900 PO 5 CMG 1140, CMG 2140 PO 6 CMG 2265, CMG 3265 PO 7 CMG 4120 PO 8 CMG 4300 PO 9 CMG 4200, CMG 4210 PO 10 CMG 4400 PO 11 PO 12 All CMG courses All CMG courses 13

14 Program Educational Objectives Assessment Tools: The target outcomes impact the CMG program curriculum in areas related to basic and advanced Construction Management skills. Table 2 shows all the assessment tools that were used for the PEOs. Job Placement Data Data from the Career Office on our graduates job placement reflects the success of our graduates in securing a job in a related field. Alumni Survey This is a written questionnaire which our alumni are asked to complete. Data will be collected every three years. The data will be analyzed and used in continuous improvement. A sample copy of the survey is in Appendix E. The next survey will take place during the academic year. Employer Survey The Employer Survey is a written questionnaire which is sent to employers of our CMG graduates. Data will be collected every three years. Results of data analysis will be used to enhance and strengthen our program. A sample copy of the survey is in Appendix E. The next survey will take place during the academic year. Input from Industrial Advisory Board (IAB) The CMG Industrial Advisory Board assists the CMG program in keeping our program current and relevant. Input from the IAB is collected every year and is considered in making continuous improvements to the program. Program Educational Objectives Assessment Process Table 4 shows the assessment tools used and the recent achievement standard (Academic Year ) for each of the Program Educational Objectives (PEOs). These results will be updated with another Alumni Survey and Employer Survey during
