Open Access, Satellite Education Service (OASES): Final Annual Report.
South Oklahoma City Junior Coll., OK.
This report assesses the Open Access, Satellite Education Services (OASES) program, a joint venture between South Oklahoma City Junior College and the Metropolitan Library System of Oklahoma County designed to provide adult education opportunities to all segments of the area's urban population. Program goals are outlined in terms of numbers of program participants (by age, ethnic background, residence, and payment mechanism used), participant evaluation of classes, effects of publicity and recruitment on enrollment, counseling effectiveness, activities summary, and library programming. Tables summarize the general characteristics of the target community, obstacles to adult education (e.g., transportation, child care, cost of classes), and non-credit, credit, and special program and workshop course offerings. Also included are a survey of student evaluations of OASES programs; sample pages of the "Central Oklahoma Educational Resource Directory"; an OASES cost effectiveness study; supervisors' responses to evaluators' criteria for effective joint programming; results of a survey of library users; letters of support; evaluations of the administration, the mid-management and planning, and the advisory committee and other OASES staff; and a budget report.
