INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH IN THE JUNIOR COLLEGE, REPORT OF A CONFERENCE SPONSORED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA AT LOS ANGELES AND THE COMMISSION FOR ACCREDITING CALIFORNIA JUNIOR COLLEGES (LOS ANGELES, JULY 13-14, 1961).
California Univ., Los Angeles. School of Education.
THE TEXTS OF PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE CONFERENCE AND A SUMMARY OF A PANEL DISCUSSION COMPOSE THE BODY OF THIS REPORT. THREE GENERAL QUESTIONS WERE IDENTIFIED AS SUITABLE TARGETS FOR INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH--(1) WHAT CHANGES WOULD SUBSTANTIALLY IMPROVE THE EDUCATIONAL COMPETENCY OF STUDENTS. (2) WHAT CHANGES WOULD INCREASE AN INSTITUTION'S EDUCATIONAL EFFICIENCY. (3) WHAT CHANGES WOULD MOST REALISTICALLY RELATE AN INSTITUTION'S TOTAL EFFORT TO THE NEEDS OF THE COMMUNITY IT SERVES. SUGGESTED ORGANIZATIONAL PATTERNS PROVIDE FOR (1) A FULL-TIME DIRECTOR OF RESEARCH, (2) USE OF A RESEARCH PERSON FROM A UNIVERSITY TO SERVE AS A PART-TIME DIRECTOR, (3) COOPERATIVE EMPLOYMENT OF A FULL-TIME DIRECTOR BY SEVERAL COLLEGES IN A CENTRAL INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH SERVICE. HAVING AS ITS PRIMARY PURPOSE THE PROVISION OF BASES FOR DECISIONS AND JUDGMENTS, INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH SHOULD BE SUPPORTED ONLY IF THE RESULTS ARE TO BE USED, THE FACULTY IS PREPARED FOR THE PROGRAM, AND THERE IS PROVISION FOR EVALUATION. REPORTS DESCRIBE SPECIFIC INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH PROGRAMS AND THE RESULTS OF A STUDY OF INSTITUTIONAL RESEARCH IN JUNIOR COLLEGES IN WESTERN STATES. (WO)
