Outcomes Assessment in Postsecondary Occupational Programs: A Consortial Approach. Project Report.
State Univ. of New York, Albany. Two Year Coll. Development Center.
Outcome assessment has come to mean documentation, beyond grades and numbers of graduates, of higher education's results as proof of quality and evidence of improving undergraduate education. This document describes a consortium formed by the Two-Year College Development Center of the State University of New York, the Bureau of Postsecondary Grants Administration in the New York State Education Department, and seven community colleges in the Mid-Hudson Region of New York State to determine the feasibility of measuring outcome assessments in selected occupational and technical postsecondary programs. This (1990) program description shares selected results of the first year's efforts in using these outcome measures. This document is arranged by seven technical areas and presents selected items from the committee reports: (1) accounting; (2) business administration; (3) computer information services; (4) criminal justice; (5) engineering technologies; (6) foods and hospitality; and (7) human services. Each section contains some or all of the following: committee members, recommended outcomes assessment strategies, materials and plans, and sample assessment items. Some materials in these reports are in draft or pilot stages. (NLA)
