Community College Journal for Research and Planning.
Carter, Edith H., Ed.
Community College Journal for Research and Planning, v1 n2 Fall 1982
This journal, designed as a forum for the exchange of ideas among research and planning professionals, offers articles of research studies and practices. After Timothy Lightfield highlights upcoming professional association events, Janice S. Ancarrow's article, "The National Vocational Education Data Reporting and Accounting System (VEDS): Its Utility for Community College Planning and Research," provides background on the VEDS and the kind of data it offers. Next, Mary Kathryne Baratta explains "A Model for Instructional Program Evaluation," based on the system at Moraine Valley Community College, Illinois. "Use of the Community College Goals Inventory in Allocating Appropriate Priorities to Institutional Goals and to Estimate the Change of Priorities Needed to Achieve Intended Outcomes," by Madan Capoor, provides guidelines for aligning existing and desired goals and allocating resources to reflect changed priorities. Next, Roger Yarrington reports on a meeting of the National Council in Research and Planning, during which eight indicators of the scope and nature of community college services were identified. After the presentation of three book reviews, John M. Nickens' article, "What Criteria Community College Students Would Like to Rate about Teaching," describes a study of student attitudes regarding their input in faculty evaluation. The journal concludes with an annotated bibliography of ERIC documents on institutional research. (AYC)
