Criminal Justice Spring 2014 Student SLO Report
1. What did you like about this program?
Text Response
I like the hands on experience
The ability to achieve the associate degree AND certifiability simultaneously.
Learning all the important things needed to become a law enforcement officer. Hands on
learning. Scenarios. Discussions.
It was an extremely interesting program
My overall experience in the Criminal Justice program was a good one. For the most part, my
instructors were helpful and timely in communicating with me. The variety of media and
activities used aided my learning. My favorite classes were EVOC and Firearms because the
majority of the learning was hands on. Being able to participate in taser and oc exposure was a
great experience and showed me how I react to control devices.

2. What would you change about this program?
Text Response
Less death by powerpoint
The instructors should exercise more control over the students. I felt like students got away
with a lot of immature behavior and what would (in the "real world") amount to insubordination.
should start doing scenarios throughout the entire school year instead of waiting until the last
month before graduation, too stressful. same goes for quizzes, tests, exams for a few of the
classes.
nothing
This last trimester my workload was almost overwhelming. I took 20 credits this trimester to
finish by graduation. It would have been helpful to spread out the work more evenly over the
course of the 2 year program. Something I appreciated during this past year was the separation
of degree students and those who were going for certifiability. I liked that the degree and
academy were integrated but the students who were not going for certifiability did not take the
program very seriously. This hindered my learning and took away from class time.

communication skills you learned.
Text Response
Just how to be more voicturous
One thing I am glad was added to our classes this trimester were practice scenarios. It was
very helpful to use the communication, critical thinking, and decision making skills we had
learned in a real life type application.

Text Response
The population wasnt extremely "diverse" but you work with what you have.
Apart from varying social backgrounds and personality differences, there wasn't much diversity
in this program at all. All of the students were White except one. I understand that we are in a
predomniantly White part of the nation, but I think it would be beneficial for the school to
encourage interested minorities to enroll in the program.

One thing that I was unsure of was who to contact in what situation, like what should I be telling
dispatch and when I should be contacting them. Also follow through procedures in
investigations, like who needs a copy of my report and follow up communication with
victims/witnesses.

31. CONCLUSION - Please use this space to share any other
feedback, comments, or suggestions about your experience
at Western Technical College.
Text Response
I wish the students took it more seriously that would have greatly improved my experience.
It was not made secret that the instructors do not have a good relationship with administration.
Poor morale among the instructors is not beneficial to student education.
Sparta campus - the student lounge should at least have a lunch machine (ex. sandwiches...)
instead of just junk food; being at the Sparta campus all day for classes and sometimes no
transportation, students sometimes starve and it's not healthy. Sometimes what DOJ manual
says contradict with powerpoints/books given to us. But Mostly all teachers were able to help us
students understand the situation of each topic.
