1 Academic Program Review Program: Computer Programming and Analysis Computer Information Technology Prepared by: Susan Thrall, Ph.D. Keith Rupert, M.S. Approved by: Tracy Hickman Date Submitted: 12/15/11

2 Description of the Program Review Process Program review is part of Florida Gateway College s (FGC) ongoing institutional effectiveness process to achieve its mission and goals through strategic planning, research, evaluation, and the use of information and data to guide decisions and actions. Educational programs, administrative and educational support departments are systematically reviewed as part of the process. The purpose of program review is to evaluate the quality of education, efficiency of services and processes, and adequacy of institutional resources. It is a tool used to document the achievement of goals and objectives. The results of evaluation are analyzed and actions are taken to address areas that need improvement. The dean or director approves the completed report and submits it to the department of Research and Institutional Effectiveness (RIE). RIE coordinates the distribution of the report to the program review committee and instructs them on the proper assessment procedure. RIE compiles the results from the program review committee and creates a summary for the administrative review committee. The administrative review committee will meet with the appropriate department representatives to discuss the findings and recommendations of the committees.

3 Section 1 Program Profile Mission To provide an excellent education in basic computer skills both face-to-face and online to the students of Florida Gateway College so that they are computer literate and able to technologically compete in today s world To provide computer majors with the technology skills necessary to satisfy the demand within our local five county area for computer-skilled personnel Vision The majority of students on campus will have taken a CGS-prefixed, computer course and will implement their computer skills across the curriculum of courses they take while at Florida Gateway College. The Computer Sciences will have implemented three certificate/degree programs, each leading easily into the next level to the next certificate or associate degree with the addition of only a few courses. Students will be able to complete the entire first certificate online. Computer majors will be able to choose from several computer certificates and associate of science degrees. (see attached graphic) The skills and knowledge learned by the computer majors will satisfy the demand of businesses in the five county area for skilled computer personnel Florida Gateway College will regularly advertise on media the Computer Sciences program in order to have it continually in the public eye. The computer program will have succeeded in increasing its number of students declaring computers as their major. Program Goals and Related College Strategic Plan Goal (SPG): Goals are broad, general statements that define the program s direction for continuous improvement. Goals are the framework for the more specific objectives. (objectives will be identified in section 6, Planning) Goal Type Goal SPG # Teaching/ Curriculum Ensure the curriculum is current and relevant to meet the needs of 1, 3, 4 students and industry Technology Use technology to increase student learning 1 Recruitment/Retention Implement strategies to increase enrollment & retention in 1 computer science programs Customer Service Provide exemplary customer service to students, faculty and staff 1,2 Community Outreach Provide services and programs that support the needs of FGC s surrounding community 4 Page 3 of 14

6 Section3: Learning Outcomes Program Learning Outcomes: List the identified program learning outcomes that have been the focus of assessment for the past 3-5 years, the results of assessment, and how the results were used to make program changes, and resulting improvements. Learning Outcome Assessment Measure Assessment Results Use of the Results Improvements and Criteria Demonstrate understanding of networked environments Demonstrate understanding of computer systems architecture including components, networked environments, and operating systems. Bring the Cisco Networking program back into the curriculum required for both the A.S. degree in Computer Programming and Analysis and the A.S. degree in Computer Information Technology and increase the number of passing students for the first Cisco class. Passing the Cisco Skills and Written test for Cisco semesters 1 was used as the measure. Curriculum was changed to require several classes in computer architecture, troubleshooting computer operating systems, and networking no matter whether the student is pursuing an A.S. degree in Computer Programming and Analysis or a Computer information Technology degree. Cisco went from 0 students to 4 students finishing passing Cisco semester 1 in 2009 to now 8 students finishing and passing in 2010 (limit of 10 students per class) By including three newly required classes, the classes are now generally full and the pass rate is 90%. Looking at what former students accomplished we chose to do what Cisco calls the Discovery curriculum where students have more hands on time with equipment rather than the Exploration curriculum that is more esoteric and more theory oriented. Classes were placed back to back on only two days a week in the time schedule which encouraged students to take more than one class since they were already at school. All students now have a better understanding of hardware, software, and simple home and business networks. Because of a grant in another program, serendipitously more equipment was purchased so there was more hands-on time doing the labs. Students can have more hands on time and work in smaller groups. Students are now contacting each other outside class and for the first time, study groups have been formed. Students are reinforcing learned concepts and teaching each other. Page 6 of 14
