Maryland Community Colleges Instructional Program Manual.
Maryland State Board for Community Colleges, Annapolis.
This revised manual presents a timetable, proposals and evaluation procedures, and information on the designation, discontinuance, and inactivation of instructional programs for Maryland community colleges. After the first section presents a timetable for the proposal and evaluation of new and existing instructional programs, information on instructional program proposals provides definitions of transfer and occupational programs; procedures related to filing letters of intent for development of new programs; and evaluation, review, endorsement, and revision procedures. Next, the designation process for statewide instructional programs is examined in terms of general criteria for statewide designation, and review and approval procedures. Then, instructional program evaluation is discussed with focus on the system of quantitative evaluation, criteria used to determine whether a qualitative evaluation of a program is required, and a summary of evaluation procedures. Finally, procedures for discontinuance and inactivation of instructional programs are specified. Appendices include forms for instructional program proposals, designation, and discontinuance; a market analysis survey form; information on the distribution of statewide instructional program funds; and a guide for users of the program data monitoring system printout.
