Monson, Kyle C.
To evaluate the effectiveness of the programs and services at the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF), a survey was conducted of 1,127 students who graduated in April 1995. Study results, based on responses from 34.1% (n=384) of the graduates, included the following: (1) the proportion of females answering the survey was 3% higher that their relative distribution in the graduating class; (2) the average graduate was a career noncommissioned officer, 34-year-old-male with 13 years in the Air Force and assigned to Air Education and Training Command or Air Combat Command; (3) for 87.5% of the respondents, their associate degree from CCAF was their highest educational accomplishment; (4) for the 252 respondents who had subsequently enrolled in another institution, 32.1% indicated that two-thirds or more of their CCAF credits were accepted in transfer, while only 2.8% reported that no credits were accepted; (5) graduates were generally satisfied with CCAF, with 59.3% rating their experience as outstanding or excellent; (6) 74.2% strongly agreed or agreed that earning their CCAF degree improved their supervisory skills, while 64.8% thought that it had improved their job knowledge; (7) 96.9% of the graduates indicated they would recommend completion of a degree at CCAF to others; and (8) the vast majority of graduates (81.8%) agreed or strongly agreed that CCAF had a positive impact on the Air Force mission.
