Garlock, Jerry C., Ed.
The proceedings of a conference discussing the usefulness of evaluation in inducing change are presented. Conference sessions discussed inventory goals; COPES: Diagnosis and Prognosis; Student Assessment; College Assessment; Staff Evaluation; Interchange; and Enrollment Depression. Participants in the conference were research directors, a counselor, a director of technical education, a test company psychologist, a consultant from the Chancellor's office, a dean of occupational and continuing education, a president of a private company, a data processing manager, a director from the Department of Finance, a college president, and a member of a board of trustees. A 28-item questionnaire was developed to provide data relevant to the development of a researcher profile in regard to research as it now exists at California Community Colleges. There are 10 researchers who devote over 50 percent of their time to research activities. There are also 19 full-time researchers. Data received indicated that no pattern exists regarding research job descriptions, office organizations, or budget requirements. (CK)
