A Design for Evaluation of the Institutional Goals of La Montana Regional College.
Clarke de Toro, Mary F.
A project was conducted at La Montana Regional College, a two-year institution in the central mountain region of Puerto Rico, to design a system by which solid, empirical evidence of institutional goal achievement could be collected. The project involved four components: a study of the literature on institutional goal achievement and the appropriate means for measuring goal achievement; a revision of the mission and goal statements of La Montana; approval from the college administration of the revised goal statements; and the design of appropriate progress measures for each goal. The project report includes a literature review, a discussion of the purpose and design of the study, background information on the college, an enumeration of institutional goals and the progress measures to be applied, and a time table for the design of outcome studies (e.g., attitude studies, graduate follow-ups, cost/benefit analysis of human resources, needs assessment of continuing education, and program evaluations).
