Measurable Student Learning Outcomes
1. (Knowledge Level) Recognize safety hazards associated with power train systems.
2. (Application Level) Use a service manual to disassemble and assemble a manual, power shift, countershaft, and hydrostatic transmission.
3. (Evaluation Level) Evaluate parts of a disassembled transmission to determine if they can be re-used using a service manual or reserviceablity guide.
4. (Application Level) Use a service manual to find troubleshooting, diagnostic, and repair procedures for any given scenario or problem.
5. (Application Level) With the use of a laptop computer, download trouble codes to aid in diagnosing power train failures.
6. (Application Level) Apply basic concepts to determine if a transmission failure is electronic, hydraulic, or mechanical.
7. (Application Level) Use a volt/Ohm meter to determine if the fault is in the wiring harness or electronic component of a computer controlled transmission.
8. (Evaluation Level) Justify your findings by testing the failed component with the use of a service manual and special tools provided.
9. (Evaluation Level) Justify your repair by installing new or repaired components and test machine performance.
Internal/External Standards Accreditation

1. Analyze in writing or orally several given scenarios over the length of the course that will cover every component that receives or sends information from a transmission computer (controller).

2. Prove understanding of the course learning outcomes as defined by performance descriptions outlined in the AED Foundation Standards through tests in written form such as quizzes, tests, midterms, and final exams.
