The five parts of this report are: research on instruction; faculty dissertations; inter-institutional research; in-college research; and college-endorsed research. The first covers experiments in teaching French, practical nursing, English, math, and chemistry, and in giving examinations. Faculty dissertations include studies of post-graduate activities of student government officers; effects of seating arrangements in counseling; confirmation experiences related to self-image; concepts of science instruction in general education; and a systems approach to professionalism of faculty in certain Florida colleges. Inter-institutional research projects are reported for identification, placement, and curriculum for academically unprepared students; follow-up of entering freshmen (1966); a clearinghouse for the Florida Community Junior College Inter-institutional Research Council; student rights, freedoms, and involvements; composition writing study. (The last two were done as League for Innovation activities.) In-house research includes a follow-up of Santa Fe graduates, 1966-68; evaluation of an education aide program; and description of an early-childhood center. College endorsed projects are a pilot study of student attitudes to the media used in speech classes; a survey of attitudes toward law of several student social groups; study of student attitudes to pharmacy; action project with transfer graduates to determine the college's success in implementing three of its goals.
