The mission of the Computer Electronics AAS program is to train students in maintenance and repair of digital/computer equipment, including computer hardware,
hands-on maintenance, electronic fundamentals, and programming.

                                                                                     Program Context and General Comments
                                                           This report is based on KPC's AAS Computer Electronics AY10 Assessment Plan

    Right now, KPC keeps all of its outcomes in one site at the top of the academics degree programs page. Starting in Spring of 2010 with the
                      redesign of the KPC Web site, each program's outcomes will be on individual program's Web pages.

            Discuss with program faculty how to handle nonsubmissions and withdrawals, in
            terms of outcome results grades. They could be included in the overall averages
            and results or they could just be comments on the analysis sheet. Consistency

Many upgrades were put into the computer electronics lab over the past two years, as you
   can see in past recommendations. There are no current recommendations for this
                                   academic year.
   A permanent lab aid/assistant has been hired and most of the course work, quizzes,
  anything not directly hands-on, has been placed on blackboard. That is an on-going
                                        project.

                    Preamble to Outcomes Analysis: This program had a full-time faculty member for most of the core courses the two previous years. At the beginning of AY07, this instructor left.
                    Another full-time instructor came on board in January of 2007. Adjuncts and other full-time faculty filled in during the fall 2006 semester. Some discontinuity may have been
                    experienced by students during this time, but a great focus has been made to provide a continued stable learning environment.

                    The previous instructor thought that student surveys, instructor impressions surveys, and grade data were sufficient documentation of student learning. The new instructor has begun
                    to include direct assessments and is planning on more for next year.

                    During the summer of 2007 (right now), extensive upgrades will be made to the electronics lab. The program recently underwent a program review and some updates were made to
                    program requirements, CCGs, and plans were placed in motion that lead toward the upgrades going in now.

                          from oil pipelines to petrochemical plants, to automobile manufacturing. To my knowledge, KRC has the most advanced and capable lab of this type in Alaska. This will give our IPI students extremely valuable
                          knowledge and credentials as they join industries which are quickly transitioning to this type of control. This environment can also be used to augment the PRT program.

     Last year this program underwent a program review in which core course requirements were modified and updated. Several CCGs were also updated
     and some will get updated this fall. The electronics lab is currently receiving major upgrades. The library holdings have been reviewed and the new
     faculty member will recommend one or two new library holdings each semester to keep the circulation updated (including this past semester). At the
     current time, there are no additional recommendations, other than some more project data gathering for next years assessment plan and reporting cycle
     (see comments in Outcomes Analysis tab).
