Needed: Evaluation Criteria for the Community College Broadcasting Education Program.
At present it is difficult to evaluate broadcasting education programs because of a lack of suitable criteria integral to the broadcasting discipline itself. A set of criteria are suggested here. They are: 1) an identifiable local need for a community college broadcasting education program does exist; 2) a viable broadcasting education industry advisory committee is in operation at the community college; 3) the program undergoes continuous self-evaluation; 4) the faculty should combine higher education and broadcast industry work experience; 5) the faculty salaries are high enough to attract qualified personnel; 6) facilities and equipment are adequate to meet the needs of the program; 7) counseling and placement services are provided; 8) the learning resources center is able to meet student needs; 9) students receive credit for off-campus station internship experience; 10) the college integrates its programs with the offerings of other colleges; 11) the college provides equal educational opportunity, and 12) the program has the potential for balance between general and occupational education. Guidelines relating to these criteria are also stated. (JK)
