The Circle of Evaluation in the Community Junior College.
Trent, James W.
Community colleges need to evaluate, free from prejudice, the nature and impact of their whole system. Lack of effective programs for minority students is one of many discrepancies between objectives held and those actually implemented. The goals of a successful evaluation are to measure and identify a combination of input and process factors that contribute to desired outcome criteria, and to provide such information as will give educators a more informed basis for determining what to change in the system in order to improve the educational experience. An evaluation depends on thorough research. As research resources for the community colleges are meager, it is necessary for the individual college to make effective use of available materials, to pool its information with other community colleges, and to consult and collaborate with relevant university-based research centers. The success of such a program depends on sufficient financial support, continued pooling of information, and the receptivity of the community colleges. (CA)
