An Evaluation of the Effectiveness of the Jordan and Lakewood Extension Campus Programs of Long Beach City College.
Jones, Richard L.
The effectiveness of instruction at the Jordan and Lakewood Extension Campuses of Long Beach City College (LBCC) was examined by questionnaire and interview. A 4-item questionnaire was used for the extension students and a 7-item one for the evening high school graduates. Interviews were conducted with 25 former students (on the quality and utility of the courses they had taken) and with selected employers and subsequent educators of the graduates. The extension students and evening graduates were all asked how many classes they were taking, why they were attending, and where they heard of the program; the extension students were also asked what other courses they would like to see offered and the evening graduates were asked what subjects were most helpful, how they rated course quality, what comments or criticisms they had, and whether they planned to continue at LBCC. The general conclusions were that the programs were comprehensive, well structured, well taught, well organized, and pertinent to community needs. Among the recommendations were (1) wider public distribution of information on college opportunities and class schedules, especially through the newspapers, (2) more contact between college personnel and key members of the community, (3) establishment of follow-up procedures for continuing evaluation, and (4) more institutional research with help from the student personnel and registrar's offices.
