Nursery Education Program Follow-Up Survey & Evaluation for the Class of 1977.
A follow-up survey of the 27 students who had either completed the Nursery Education program sequence or graduated with an associate degree in Nursery Education from Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) in June 1977 was conducted in Spring 1978 to determine students' assessment of the Nursery Education program and their perceptions of the program's helpfulness in achieving their vocational and/or educational goals. Two survey instruments were administered. The follow-up questionnaire focused on age at completion of program, sex, employment status, helpfulness of the program in obtaining employment, relatedness of job to education, transferability of courses, relatedness of SCCC major to four-year college major, helpfulness of Nursery Education courses, value of fieldwork experience, and satisfaction with the program. The program evaluation form asked respondents to rate the helpfulness of the Nursery Education program in relation to achieving specific behavioral objectives in the areas of personal development and professional attitudes, practical skills, and theoretical knowledge. The survey achieved a 74% response rate; 60% of the respondents were employed, 20% had transferred to a four-year institution, and 10% were neither employed nor attending school. The survey instruments are included in the study report. (AYC)
