Faculty Analysis:

The mathematics faculty reviewed the results of the 2204-2005 General Education Assessment, focusing on each of the courses independently.  

The MAT 115 course has undergone a radical change.  In the Fall semester 2004, the format of the course was changed and the learning outcomes were enhanced.  The faculty believes the revision aligns the course more closely to the spirit of the description in the common course library and better prepares the students for the technology skills required in today's workplace and everyday life.  Part-time faculty members taught all but two sections of the course in the Fall 2004 semester.  The two sections taught by the full time faculty member met the goal.  After discussion, the mathematics faculty concluded that the part-time faculty members were not significantly informed about the general education goals and assessment.

ACTION:1.  The General Education Goals will be included in the Course Syllabus.

2.

The part-time orientation for the course will include a discussion of the general education goals and the general education assessment.  

The results of the MAT161 assessment were a surprise to the mathematics faculty.  Neither the course nor the assessment has changed significantly since the previous year when the goal was met.  After discussion, the faculty concluded that the general education goals need to be brought to the attention of all instructors teaching the course.

ACTION:  1.  The General Education Goals will be included in the Course Syllabus.

2.

The College Algebra Committee will prepare a suggested assignment

     sheet for the course noting exercises that address the general education

goals.

3.

The part-time orientation for the course will include a discussion of the general education goals and the general education assessment.

Since the General Education Goals are designed to measure the skills of those students awarded a degree by Central Piedmont Community College and since some of the students taking the assessment do not pass the course, the mathematics faculty would like to determine the correlation between the students who mastered the goals and the students who passed the course.

ACTION:  The General Education Assessment will be administered in the spring semester and the correlation between the students who mastered the goals and the students who passed the course will be calculated.
