Instructional Assistant Fall 2015 Student SLO Report
1. What did you like about this program?
Text Response
I really enjoyed this program because interesting subjects were being taught, the instructors
were flexible and laid back and were always willing to help out when needed. Within two years,
there was so much that I stressed that we'd have to know and learn by those two years, but
now that I look back we learned so much within those two years and it's unbelievable.
The most important thing I liked about this program was that it challenged me to push myself
further and therefore I learned more than I would have. Shelly is an amazing instructor with a
goal of making sure we attain and retain as much knowledge as possible, so when I go into the
field I have the skills that help make me a good Para. She also shows caring and compassion
which sometimes a person just needs to get through the day. The other instructors in this
program are also excellent at what they do and they want us to be successful. They are
invested in our success almost as much as we are. Overall an excellent program I would
recommend to anyone who has a passion for this field.
I liked that we got into the schools right away. working with the kids right in the first semester
was great because we were able to tell right away if this is what we wanted to do or not. I also
liked that this was not an online program, meeting face to face with the teacher was very
beneficial for this program.

2. What would you change about this program?
Text Response
I wouldn't change much about this program, probably just how some of the classes could go
from 12-6. It was just a little too much even though we had breaks in between.
There really is nothing I would change about this program. If I am successful in this field it is
because of this program.
One of the only things I disliked was the scheduling. As a student who did a lot of commuting I
found it slightly annoying when my class scheduling didn't work out very well and I was stuck
there for a 5 hour block. Also, with us graduating in December we have to wait til spring to walk
at graduation. By then some of us are not even in the area anymore. I feel it would be beneficial
to hold a ceremony in December as well for the December graduates.
