Development, Implementation, and Evaluation of an Academic Advising Model for Use in the Small, Private College.
Kroll, Ronald C.
The purpose of this project was to identify academic advising strategies that would be appropriate for the small, private college setting; to develop an academic advising system; and to implement the system through a trial model at Practical Bible Training School in Binghamton, New York. The model consisted of preservice and inservice training for advisers, intrusive advising for high-risk students, dissemination of profile data on new students to advisers, streamlined registration and group advising, and development of advising support materials. The model was evaluated through the use of two 25-item pretest-posttest questionnaires. Both students and advisers preferred procedures and materials used in the advising trial model over the former advising system by a significant margin. Adviser satisfaction improved in the following areas, among others: timely notification of advising assignments, information about abilities of advisees, and satisfaction with the level of institutional support and recognition for advisers. Student satisfaction improved in the areas of adviser knowledge of program requirements, help in selecting appropriate courses, and adviser clarification of college policies and procedures. Appendices contain advising support materials, adviser training handouts, evaluation instruments, and supporting statistical data. Includes 92 references. (Author/JDD)
