Revision of Regulations Governing Tutoring Services.
Petersen, Allan L.; Berg, Ernest H.
Prepared for the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, this report provides background on the provision of tutorial services in the colleges and recommends changes to the regulations for tutorial services. Following a report summary, background information is presented, indicating that: (1) tutoring services are being delivered through a variety of practices, and the regulations which address tutoring offered as a credit course have been criticized as vague and subject to varying interpretations; (2) the State Department of Finance and the Chancellor's Office found that a few colleges were claiming and receiving apportionments for tutorial services not in accordance with state regulations; and (3) in response to a State Department of Finance recommendation, the Chancellor's Office established an Ad Hoc Committee on Tutoring Services, which revised the regulations for tutoring services in order to permit average daily attendance (ADA) generating tutoring to be conducted only as a noncredit course and then only if other specific quality control conditions are met. The original and revised texts of the Title 5 Regulations are presented next, with staff comments. Appendices include a report on the importance and benefits of tutoring services in the community colleges, and copies of relevant legislation and pertinent memos. (Author/LAL)
