The Improvement of Occupational Education in Maryland: A Progress Report, Fiscal Year 1983.
Maryland State Board for Community Colleges, Annapolis.
Prepared as part of a joint effort by the Maryland State Board for Community Colleges (SBCC) and the Maryland State Board of Education to promote high-quality occupational programs and services, this report provides information on the state's management information system and program data monitoring system. Following the text of a resolution establishing the Joint Coordinating Committee for Occupational Education Programs, the report provides a project summary which outlines procedures and results for three project objectives: (1) to conduct statewide projects, including the preparation of computer files and reports on credit enrollment, degree recipients, graduate follow-up, leaver follow-up, employer follow-up, discipline cost analysis, continuing education, and program inventory; (2) to run the SBCC Program Data Monitoring System and review each of the 396 programs by June 1983; and (3) to publish an in-depth evaluation of 48 community college programs by March 1983 and a statewide evaluation of media/communications programs. Tables provide a statistical summary of program evaluation activities for 1978 through 1982 and identify programs designated for evaluation in 1983. Appended materials provide instructions on using information to support instructional program evaluation, a program implementation and evaluation flow chart, and guidance for users of the Program Data Monitoring System.
