Past Projects

SUNY ESF H1B DOL Assessment (2012 - 2013)

SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY ESF) (www.esf.edu) was awarded a U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) grant through the Employment and Training Administration H-1B Technical SUNYESFSkills Training program: Enhancing American Jobs and Global Competitiveness: A collaborative Initiative in Sustainable Materials and Manufacturing. With this funding, SUNY ESF established a graduate certificate program in Radiation Curing of Polymer Technologies, which will serve professionals and graduate students wishing to pursue documented graduate-level study, but who may not be interested in attending a traditional graduate degree program. This certificate program is complementary to the Institute for Sustainable Materials and Manufacturing (ISMM) program at SUNY ESF, which prepares students to work with sustainable materials and manufacturing, a vital and growing sector in the U.S. economy. SUNY ESF contracted with Hezel Associates on a consulting basis to aid in the evaluation and assessment of this new certificate program.

As part of this consultation, Hezel Associates collected, analyzed, and reported on a program needs assessment for the online radiation curing credit courses, overall project outcomes, and DOL required participant-level data. Hezel Associates developed quality assessment protocols and execution plans for the online course sequence focusing on effectiveness of learning outcomes, instructor participant efficiency, and participant satisfaction with the program. As a consultant, Hezel Associates provided SUNY ESF with a program needs assessment providing insight into the success of this new certificate offering.
