SAM [Student Accountability Model], COPES [Community College Occupational Programs Evaluation System], & You.
California Community Colleges, Sacramento. Office of the Chancellor.; Los Angeles Community Coll. District, CA.
This manual contains information on two evaluation systems for occupational programs at California community colleges. For the first, COPES (Community College Occupational Programs Evaluation System), which is a self-evaluation process, a guide is provided as well as a set of seven evaluation forms for the college president, faculty, counselors and administrators, part-time instructors, students, advisory committee members, and a site visitation team. The guide delineates the various steps in the COPES study that ultimately result in a written report summarizing the strengths of the college occupational programs, their priority needs for improvement, and the responses of the evaluation forms. For the second, SAM (Student Accountability Model), which is a followup evaluation, an operations manual is included as well as various forms and code listings. The manual describes SAM's major components: (1) a classification of occupational courses; (2) student followup for non-continuing students according to college major and academic accomplishment for the previous year; and (3) employer feedback. In the booklet "SAM, COPES & You" both systems are explained with emphasis on their data collection techniques, which improve the community colleges' ability to measure the performance of their vocational courses.
