 Overall Improvement
Student entrance and
exit exam scores where
evaluated to determine
the percentage of
improvement in both
areas of food safety and
meat processing
= 35 percentage points
 Food Safety
Improvement=
36 percentage points
 Meat Processing
Improvement =
38 percentage points
Evaluating the Outcome
Entrance exam evaluated to determine if
students tested weaker in one particular
area.
Results:
No identifiable pattern
Evaluating the Outcome…..
Exit exam was evaluated to determine areas
that students completing the program
required improvement.
Subject matter that resulted in more than
50% of students failing were targeted for
areas improvement.
Results
50% or more of students test results indicated lack of
basic knowledge in the following subjects.
MPFS 1214 – Identifying wholesale/primal cuts
Identifying basic skeletal structures
Basic wholesale and retail cuts of pork
Students exhibited adequate knowledge relating to
beef retail cuts
Results
MPFS 2144 – Advanced Livestock Processing/Safety
Analysis
50% or more of students randomly missed questions
related to MPFS 2144 (Advanced Slaughter)
Results
MPFS – 2134 Food Safety and Sanitation
50% or more of students tested a lack of knowledge
relating to temperature and bacteria growth.
All other related questions answered correctly.
MPFS – 1214
The main class that students learn about basic
wholesale and retail cuts.
New Implementations:
 More emphasis placed on learning basic structure and
anatomy of beef, pork, and lamb
 Students are specifically tested on their ability to identify
wholesale cuts


In the classroom
On hanging carcasses at the meats lab.
 A review of the basic wholesale and retail cuts will be
emphasized in other courses. Courses MPFS 2112 and
MPFS 2212 have been targeted as courses to review.
MPFS - 2144
New Implementations:
To reinforce subject matter knowledge students
required to develop and present to the class a
presentation on the 12 basic steps of slaughter.
 Students stated that they learned more while
completing this project than they learned just sitting
in lecture.
MPFS - 2134
New Implementations:
 More classroom time spent discussing the critical
temperatures for controlling bacteria growth.
 Spent more time on classroom discussion relating the
bacterial growth curve to food safety and how we can
use temperature to slow bacteria growth.
How Can I Improve Assessment?
1. Does the assessment tool accurately reflect what is
taught within the curriculum provided?
2. Does the assessment tool evaluate each subject
equally?
3. Does the assessment tool/curriculum reflect what is
expected of new employees entering a career in Meat
Processing and Food Safety?
