Performance Improvement Plan (PIP): A Conceptual Model for Instructional Improvement at Chemeketa Community College.
This report summarizes the three-part Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) conducted by the Instructional Division of Chemeketa Community College from August, 1977 to June, 1979. Results of the first stage, a needs assessment completed in 1978, are summarized in terms of limitations and additional information needed, alternative strategies, and target outcomes for each of five areas: (1) student access to courses, (2) scheduling and class size, (3) facilities, (4) instructional quality, and (5) data and methodology used. Twelve committee progress reports are then presented to summarize the second PIP state--the implementation of twelve goals set by the college for the Division. The objectives, accomplishments, goals, evaluations, and recommendations of each committee are graphically and textually presented. The report then outlines the third stage, i.e., integration of the PIP findings with the short- and long-range budgetary planning of the college as a whole. This stage includes cost effectiveness/benefits analysis based on PIP findings for the college's educational objectives, institutional goals, educational effectiveness, and educational efficiency; the integration of PIP data into the college's long-range planning cycle; and the correlation of PIP findings on program analysis and employee development with similar information gathered from other departments.
