Program Planning and Assessment (PPA)
for Academic Programs
Comprehensive Review, Annual Review & Action Plan
Spring 2015
The purpose of Program Planning and Assessment at Hartnell College is to obtain an honest and authentic view of a program and to
assess its strengths, opportunities, needs, and connection to the mission and goals of the college. The process is based on the premise that
each academic program reviews assessment data and uses these data to plan for improvement. The results of these annual cycles provide
PAGE 24 |
data for a periodic comprehensive review that shows evidence of improvement and outlines long-range goals.
The Program Planning and Assessment process improves and increases the flow of information about student learning, student success
and student behavior at Hartnell College. The result of the process also improves institutional effectiveness.

This section must be completed for ALL academic programs, including those scheduled for a comprehensive
review in spring 2015.
A. COURSE DATA & TRENDS
1. Please evaluate the 3-year trend of enrollment and success of courses in your program/discipline. Identify the
courses you are choosing to examine this current year in the list below. You do NOT need to evaluate trends for
each course every year.
Course Number
ADJ 1
Course Name
Introduction to Administration of Justice
Does the course have any DE (online or
hybrid) sections?
Yes
PAGE 24 |
ADJ 11
Law Enforcement Report Writing
Yes
ADJ 4
Criminal Evidence
Yes
ADJ 8
Introduction to Investigations
Yes
Please use the data that have been provided. Analyze trends that you observe with respect to the data for the identified courses
and answer the following questions.
ENROLLMENT
2. Review the enrollment data. Describe and analyze any patterns or anomalies that you notice. What do you
make of these patterns or anomalies? What actions should be taken to ensure continuous improvement?
ADJ classes generally enjoy a strong enrollment in both face-to-face and DE.
Enrollment for ADJ classes generally dropped in Spring ’13 to Fall ’14 because we reduced the number of offerings for the reviewed
classes. Enrollment, retention and success rate increased in all of the reviewed classes in Fall 2014 have increased.
In order to continuously improve, the following actions should be taken:
1. Increase the availability of counselors, especially the ability for timely responses to email inquiries to counselors. We have the
capability to answer career choice questions, but students often email questions about scheduling changes. It is common for them to
report that they initially tried to contact a counselor via email. Our counselors are very competent, so the assumption is about
workload.
2. Automate early intervention warnings for both face-to-face and DE students.
3. MOOCSICLE was available in 2014. It centralized much of the communication across the board for ADJ students. This has aided in
improving our data. It is recommended that we continue and bolster MOOCSICLE.
PAGE 24 |
SUCCESS
3. Review the success data. Describe and analyze any patterns or anomalies that you notice. What do you make of
these patterns or anomalies? What actions should be taken to ensure continuous improvement?
Success rates of ADJ classes has remained consistent for the classes evaluated.
ADJ 1 had a lower success rate in Fall 2014, based on the common definition of success, not the overall success of the program. The
success rate for ADJ 11 and ADJ 4 has improved.
When CDCR (California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation) began its largest recruitment in its history, Hartnell students
enrolled in 2014 Fall and Spring semesters were in the best position of any other student in the community college system. Lindsey
Bertomen personally coached about 30 students through the hiring process and about 20 other students had already applied. He
received over 25 CDCR background letters about student applicants. A background investigation is initiated when a candidate has
received a conditional offer for the job.
It is impossible to capture the data correctly, but approximately 25 students left our program for jobs paying $55,000 in the first year.
This will lower our success rate, but it is a different definition of success.
The following are actions that should be taken to ensure continuous enrollment.
1. Before 2009 we had a fully staffed tutoring center which ADJ students used regularly. This type of center, and its resulting
intervention, has never been restored to its original capabilities.
PAGE 24 |
2. Hartnell College has ADJ 1 as an approved and fielded OEI course in the Readiness Cohort. This means that this class currently has
an Online Readiness inserted into the DE class. Eventually, this will be a Full Launch class in OEI. This will add counseling resources,
and automated early intervention. It is recommended that Hartnell College become fully involved in the development of OEI courses.
3. OEI will place ADJ 1 into a statewide repository where students will have a streamlined pathway to enrollment, and Hartnell
manages the enrollments and receives the FTES. This will increase the enrollment, retention, and success rate of every aspect of our
program. It is recommended that Hartnell College be proactive in OEI participation.
DEGREES AND CERTIFICATES
4. Describe the demonstrated effectiveness of the program over the past several years with levels and trends of
achievement data, such as Degree and Certificate completions/awards.
In 2012-2013, 54 Degrees were awarded and 59 Certificates. In 2013-2014, 29 AS-T Degrees, 25 AS Degrees, and 57 Certificates were
awarded in Administration of Justice. The Administration of Justice program is one of the most successful and effective programs at
Hartnell College.

2. Compare student success in the DE teaching environment with success in the face-to-face teaching environment in
the same course. Are there differences? To what do you ascribe the differences in your program?
There are no differences in the course objectives and materials taught between an online course and a DE course.
There are differences in success and retention in the DE teaching environment than in the face-to-face teaching environment. These
differences may be ascribed to the following factors:
● Financial aid fraud occurs much more frequently in online courses, leading to reduced success rates in these courses;
● Success rates encompass students that drop or are dropped after first census, and students drop online courses much more
frequently than face-to-face courses;
● Student support such as tutoring and lab support are not as robust for online students as for face-to-face students, leading to
reduced success and retention rates in the online environment.
.
3. Describe the process to change and improve student success in DE courses/sections in your program.
The California Community College Chancellor’s Office uses a formula that measures success based on the first census, rather than success
of students enrolled at the end of the term. That is, the students not enrolled at the time grades are calculated are figured into the overall
success of the course. This particular method of measuring success will always show that DE classes have lower success rates.
PAGE 24 |
If we were to remove the number of “students” who appear on our initial rosters continually as potential financial aid abusers, we would
make room for students who actually enroll for the purposes of education. The “students” in question seem to do just enough to overcome
the initial drop, then disappear altogether.
ADJ classes are often waitlisted and it is likely that we are unable to capture all of the students on a waitlist, or others who see a full
classroom and look at another institution.
Recommendation: We need to have more robust fraud processes in place.
See above comments about OEI. OEI will significantly change our DE program.
4. Compare student retention in the DE teaching environment with retention in the face-to-face teaching
environment in the same course. Are there differences? To what do you ascribe the differences in your program?
Please see above comments on the prevalence of financial aid fraud.
One other thing we have noticed on a statewide level is a problem that continues to reappear at Hartnell. Students are under the
impression that DE classes are easier. They enroll, and then find out that the amount of work is significant. Unfortunately, we have
been informally polling our students and some of this impression comes from our own faculty. In a DE conference, Lindsey Bertomen
was told that this is common in most community colleges. The non-DE faculty helps to perpetuate the myth that DE is “easier than the
face-to-face version”.
5. Describe the process to change and improve student retention in DE courses/sections in your program.
See comments about financial aid fraud and #4.

D. OUTCOMES
Use your Program Outcome Maps to assist you in this subsection. As you plan your course assessments, keep the higher level
program outcome in mind. While course level assessment serves the purpose of examining the teaching and learning for that
PAGE 24 |
particular course, it also provides the data that will be viewed collectively for assessment of the associated program level
outcomes.
PROGRAM LEVEL OUTCOMES

outcome have been assessed and the data has been entered
into elumen.
2. Describe how program level outcomes were specifically addressed by the program/discipline during the
past year.
For example, were data gathered at the course level? Was there review and analysis of the data? How did the discipline faculty
engage in discussion? Were any interventions conducted? Are there any plans to make changes to Certificate/Degree programs or
improvements in teaching and student learning?
Data was gathered at the course level for every course supporting the stated program-level outcome. There was review and analysis of
the data, and discussion between discipline faculty. There were interventions conducted such as strengthening course materials in
areas where there was significantly lower achievement. Now that MOOCSICLE is developed and being facilitated, all adjunct
instructors have their course-level student learning outcomes assessed, and the data is available to them so that they can consistently
improve their course materials and teaching pedagogy. All adjunct instructors in the ADJ discipline have been informed that their
course-level student learning outcome assessment data is available in elumen.
CORE COMPETENCIES
PAGE 24 |
3. Describe how Core Competencies (Communication Skills, Information Skills, Critical Thinking/Problem
Solving, Global Awareness, Aesthetic Appreciation, Personal Growth and Responsibility) were specifically
addressed by the program/discipline during the past year. For example, were data gathered at the course
level? Was there review and analysis of the data? How did the discipline faculty engage in discussion? Were
any interventions conducted? Are there any plans to make changes to courses or improvements in teaching
and student learning?
ADJ offers multiple Degrees and a Certificate, so Core Competencies were not specifically addressed during the past year.

5. Describe course level assessments results and how they will influence your plans moving forward.
If the assessment data fails to meet ADJ discipline faculty expectations, the areas of emphasis will be strengthened in course
materials and pedagogy. Since all instructors-including adjunct instructors-will see their course-level SLO assessment results, they
will know which areas of the course need to be enhanced to improve student mastery of the subject matter. Anomalies can be
immediately noted and corrected every semester, which is far superior to assessing courses intermittently.
6. Describe assessment activities that need to be strengthened or improved. What are the challenges to achieving
these improvements?
PAGE 24 |
Since every student learning outcome in every ADJ course will now be assessed every semester, assessment activities do not need to
be strengthened or improved; this is the best possible scenario for the discipline. New challenges may arise, but the centralized
assessment portal should enhance consistency and expose anomalies immediately, improving student mastery and achievement in
all ADJ courses and programs.

1. Evaluate the success of each activity scheduled, including activities completed and those in progress. What
measurable outcomes were achieved? Did the activities and subsequent dialogue lead to significant change in
student learning or program success?
MOOCSICLE was successful in fall, 2014. Information about employment, internships, academies, and new legislation was
immediately distributed to all ADJ students when it came in. Students that had questions could get answers quickly and efficiently.
Occasionally, adjunct instructors do not have broad knowledge when it comes to Degree attainment, course requirements, and other
educational issues because they have career experience but little to no training in education. With one senior faculty member
facilitating MOOCSICLE, all student questions could be answered quickly and accurately. Students with no technological experience
were gently introduced to technology when taking SLO assessments and the Online Student Readiness Assessment online. The
writing and ADJ tutorial modules helped students with all materials supporting the PLO. Many students expressed gratitude and
relief for MOOCSICLE. Students did not appear overly confused by MOOCSICLE or the assessment process.
ADJ 76 was introduced in Spring 2014, after review and recommendation from our Advisory Committee. This class was developed
to aid the first responder and investigator. We enlisted the aid of Senior Investigator David Doglietto to advise on the curriculum.
Besides being an adjunct instructor at Hartnell College, he is a regular speaker at international forensic conferences and a wellknown blood spatter expert.
PAGE 24 |
ADJ 76 has impacted several of our first responder and investigator courses in several ways. First, students going from ADJ 76 to
ADJ 11, Law Enforcement Report Writing, have brought with them investigative techniques that enhance the class. For example,
several students articulated a search method in ADJ 11 that spurred a discussion about admissibility learned from ADJ 3.
The greatest impact from ADJ 76 has been in ADJ 8, Introduction to Investigations. In the online class, it is common to have 4-6
working peace officers completing their Degrees. The students who have taken ADJ 76 prior enter ADJ 8 on a similar level as
working peace officers. This creates an extremely enhanced environment. The impact to our Degree program is unknown at this
time, but ADJ 76 has been worth the investment.
The AS-T Degree was the second-most popular AS-T Degree in Social and Behavioral Sciences, so clearly this Degree was needed
and will most likely continue to be attained in great numbers. The AS-T Degree is such a benefit for students because it allows for
seamless transfer to a California State University.

a) Describe the new activity or follow-on activity that this resource will support.
1. MOOCSICLE: ADJ faculty would like to enhance student retention and success rates by facilitating MOOCSICLE for another year.
All ADJ students are automatically enrolled in MOOCSICLE, and all ADJ course and program-level student learning outcomes will
be assessed in MOOCSICLE. The three purposes of MOOCSICLE will be to remediate/support students, to assess all ADJ courselevel student learning outcomes, and to assess all ADJ program-level student learning outcomes. MOOCSICLE materials will
include PowerPoint, printable study notes, discussion boards, assessments, interactive exercises, puzzles, games, and videos
designed to support student mastery of course and program-level student learning outcomes. MOOCSICLE should provide an
example to other disciplines and programs at Hartnell College, and also to other California Community Colleges in the state system.
b) Describe how this activity supports all of the following that apply:
PAGE 24 |
1) Core Competency (Communication Skills, Information Skills, Critical Thinking/Problem Solving, Global Awareness,
Aesthetic Appreciation, Personal Growth and Responsibility)
2) Program level Outcome (list applicable program outcome)
3) Course level Outcome (list applicable course level outcome)
4) Program/Discipline Goal (list applicable program/discipline goal)
5) Strategic Plan Goal (list applicable strategic plan goal)
MOOCSICLE will support student success in ADJ courses and programs (Strategic Priority 2). Students in MOOCSICLE will gain a
more complete understanding of the core topics which buttress both of the ADJ Degrees, naturally leading to an increased likelihood
that they will pass the ADJ courses in which they are enrolled. Eventually, these students will be able to persist until they complete the
Degree program of their choice.
MOOCSICLE also leads to effective utilization of resources (Strategic Priority 4). MOOCSICLE utilizes existing resources (Etudes shell)
to remediate/support, evaluate, and assess all ADJ students.
MOOCSICLE’s remedial modules will be structured to enhance student mastery of ADJ course and program-level student learning
outcomes, which will further augment the probability that students will successfully complete ADJ courses and eventually, an ADJ
program (Strategic Priority 2, 5).
Since course and program-level student learning outcomes will be assessed frequently, any anomalies will be immediately noted,
leading to dialogue and intervention that will gradually increase performance of all ADJ student learning outcomes (Strategic Priority
2).
c) Does this activity span multiple academic years?
☒ YES
☐ NO
If yes, describe the action plan for completion of this activity.
MOOCSICLE will be offered each academic year that it is approved and funded.
d) What measureable outcomes are expected from this activity? List indicators of success.
MOOCSICLE will enhance student success and retention rates in all ADJ courses and programs.
PAGE 24 |
e) What are the barriers to achieving success in this activity?
If MOOCSICLE is not approved or funded, it will enjoy limited success as it will not run long enough to see actual results.

d) What measureable outcomes are expected from this activity? List indicators of success.
Faculty professional development will benefit the ADJ discipline, courses, and programs. It will also benefit other faculty and staff at
Hartnell College, because both faculty members are represented on many campus committees where they will utilize the information
they have learned and also pass it on to others. Presentations at local and national conferences will raise the profile of Hartnell College,
putting Hartnell College in a position to participate in specialized activities and grant-funded opportunities such as the Online
Education Initiative.

e) What are the barriers to achieving success in this activity?
Lack of funding to support travel and conference attendance.
B. RESOURCE REQUESTS
If new/additional resources are needed for your program/discipline, it is important that you identify them and project their cost, and
that these resources and costs be considered through the College’s integrated planning (governance, budget development, funding
decision making, and resource allocation) processes. A resource is likely to be something needed to support an activity that you have
identified in IIIA above, in which case you must link the resource with a specific activity number (first column below). All resource
requests completed in the various columns of a specific row must be linked to the new or continuing activity
numbered on the first column of that same row. The first activity listed should be the most important; the second activity
listed the second most important, etc. A resource could also be something necessary for your program/discipline to function
properly to improve student learning, such as updated equipment in a classroom; in such case be sure to note that the resource is
NOT tied to a specific activity.
