PREP: Program Review Extension Procedures Manual. Michigan Community Colleges.
Michigan State Board of Education, Lansing.
The Program Review Extension Procedures (PREP) set forth in this manual are a flexible set of procedures and questionnaires designed for use by Michigan community colleges in evaluating non-occupational instructional areas. First, introductory material explains that PREP is not a component of, but rather a companion model to the Michigan Community College Occupational Education Evaluation System (MCCOEES); identifies the kinds of information gathered through PREP and how this information can be used; and discusses PREP's implementation. The next three sections explain the procedures and provide the instruments for evaluating: (1) general education requirements in occupational programs through surveys of students, occupational faculty, and general education faculty; (2) continuing education and community service through surveys of students, faculty and staff, and businesses and agencies; and (3) arts and sciences or transfer programs and courses through student and faculty surveys and other data sources. The final section offers instructions for analyzing the PREP data both manually and with a computer and offers guidance in presenting the findings. Appendices provide the PROE Occupational Faculty Questionnaire and Lansing Community College's Transfer Study Questionnaire. (LL)
