Adult Education in Community Colleges in the State of Washington.
Watness, Calvin Meredith
The purposes of this study were: (1) to determine the current evening/adult education administrative practices in community colleges in Washington State as perceived by the presidents, the deans of instruction, and the directors of evening/adult education; (2) to analyze selected administrative relationships between the full time day programs and the part time evening/adult programs as perceived by the three groups; and (3) to develop a composite of recommended practices. A specially designed questionnaire focused on the following areas: administration, adult students, finances, facilities, public relations and publicity, lay advisory committees, standards, courses and curricula, instructional staff, and program evaluation. From the 22 institutions in existence, a 95% return came from 19 presidents, 22 deans, and 22 directors. The three groups completed items in the following categories: administration, standards, courses and curricula, and instructional staff. The directors answered only items in the following categories: administration, the adult students, finances, facilities, public relations and publicity, lay advisory committees, and program evaluation. Comparisons were made among responses of the three administrator groups as a whole wherever all three responded to the same question. (Author/NL)
