Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

To purchase ten sets of basic metalworking tools that will allow students access to introductory metalworking classes.A public exhibition of the student's work is planned for early summer of 2015 and could be a part of an AlexArtWorks exhibit.By asking for feedback from students. I intend to ask them at the end of the last course to complete a short survey which will ask them: 1. To rate their enjoyment of the course (5 point scale), 2. To rate the knowledge of their instructor (5 point scale) 3. To rate the increase of their metalwork skills (5 point scale) 4. If they intend to continue to use the metalworking skills they learned (Yes or No)

Measurable Outcome(s)

Although two people did not complete the evaluation form, of the 11 people that did: all of them said they enjoyed the class; 9 of them said they would take the course again; all of them gave the instructor the highest rating possible; and they all increased their level of metalworking skills. In addition, one of the students that did not complete an evaluation has already come to work privately with me at the Senior Center Studio and three people rented tool boxes for the winter. (Copies of the evaluation form and summary results are attached.)
