Reports and abstracts are presented for research conducted during 1981 on community college education in Texas. Four institutional research reports are provided first: an evaluation of the effectiveness of the developmental studies program at North Harris County College; a study of retention patterns at Amarillo College by Stanley Adelman and Kay Henard; a survey of part-time faculty at Austin Community College (ACC) by Susan Reid and Sula Hurley; and a study of the economic impact of ACC. Next, short summaries are presented for six additional studies: (1) a statewide assessment of college presidents' attitudes toward faculty collective bargaining by Joseph Birmingham; (2) an analysis of the problems of community college freshmen by Joe Rode; (3) a study of the effects of a mediated program of instruction in helicopter pilot training by Robert Hotes; (4) an investigation of perceptions of leadership behavior held by deans and directors of student personnel services by David Parker; (5) a statewide study of classified staff decision making in policy determination, administration, and working conditions; and (6) a comparison of self-perceived leadership styles of female administrators and the perceptions of their subordinates. The titles of relevant University of Texas at Austin dissertation titles are listed prior to a report by the Texas Association of Junior and Community College Instructional Administrators Research Committee.
