Participant Evaluation of the Community College Leadership Institute, June 11-22, 1990.
Crow, Sue E.; Taylor, Mark Thomas
Most of the 27 enrollees in the institute were employed in administrative positions within the North Carolina Community College System. The institute consisted primarily of 3-hour presentations on topics related to the conference theme of "Institutional Effectiveness in Building Communities." Two types of evaluations were conducted. The first was an informal, oral-feedback evaluation held at the close of the first week of the institute and used to improve on the subsequent week's activities. The second evaluation consisted of a written survey in which participants indicated their satisfaction with the institute activities. All but one of the 27 participants returned a completed evaluation form. Major findings included the following: (1) of the 27 institute participants, 52% enrolled for credit in both courses offered during the institute, and 44% participated on a non-credit, continuing education basis; (2) on a rating scale of 1 (low satisfaction) to 5 (high satisfaction), 92% of the 361 total items responded to received a rating of either a 4 or 5, with an overall composite rating of 4.55 for the institute; (3) no responses of 1 or 2 were given for any item by any respondent; (4) 76% of institute presenters were rated either above average or superior; and (5) items receiving the highest ratings were interaction between students and presenters, the quality of the presentations, and national and/or system-wide perspective provided. Data tables, the program of institute events, and a list of participants are included. (JMC)
