Program Evaluation Guide: A Pilot Project. Academic Affairs Report No. 84-1.
A model for program evaluation at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College is presented in this report as a guide for faculty and administrators in developing a campuswide evaluation program. First, introductory material provides an overview of the history of the college, the effects of recent cutbacks, and the goals and mission of the college. Next, a review is presented of the phases and results of a 1980 curriculum revision project, which was conducted to revise the curriculum to meet the 21-hour contract provisions for instructors arising from a collective bargaining agreement and to maintain the maximum amount of weekly student contact hours. Next, the program evaluation model for the college is presented, including a statement of the college mission and the objectives of the program evaluation process, and questions to be answered as part of the evaluation process regarding college programs, program curricula, college faculty, students, administration, and campus support services. Finally, the process of program evaluation is outlined. This process includes the distribution of self-study packets, a review of self-study reports by an evaluation team, an assessment of evaluation team conclusions and recommendations by program faculty, the preparation of a final report, the use of the evaluation report in planning, and a review of the evaluation process. Appendices include relevant background information and forms pertaining to the curriculum project and the program evaluation project. (HB)
