ROUECHE, JOHN E.; SIMS, DAVID M.
STUDIES OF JUNIOR COLLEGE CURRICULA VARY WIDELY IN TYPE AND SOURCE. DEFINITION OF SPECIFIC EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES, RECOGNIZED AS A FIRST STEP IN CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT, IS DESCRIBED IN SIX STUDIES AS AN ATTEMPT TO PROVIDE A RATIONALE FOR PROGRAMS, COURSE CONTENT, AND CURRICULUM EVALUATION. SURVEYS OF EXISTING PROGRAMS, REPORTED IN 20 STUDIES, UTILIZED INSTITUTIONAL VISITS, STRUCTURED INTERVIEWS, OR QUESTIONNAIRES. MOUNT SAN ANTONIO COLLEGE'S COMMUNITY SURVEY RESULTED IN SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS FOR CONTINUATION OF EXPANSION OF TECHNICAL EDUCATION OFFERINGS. EVALUATION OF CABRILLO COLLEGE'S CONSTRUCTION TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM WAS BASED ON A QUESTIONNAIRE STUDY OF FORMER STUDENTS AND THEIR EMPLOYERS. IN MICHIGAN, LOW ENROLLMENTS IN TECHNICAL PROGRAMS WERE RELATED TO HIGH SCHOOL VOCATIONAL GUIDANCE PROGRAMS, LACK OF INTEREST, AND LACK OF CAREER INFORMATION. MULTITRACK PROGRAMS IN ENGLISH COMPOSITION ARE FOUND IN 65.8 PERCENT OF THE COLLEGES SURVEYED BY THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF TEACHERS OF ENGLISH, AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR STUDENT PLACEMENT ARE OFFERED.
