The Measurable Institutional Objectives Approach to Management by Objectives, Mt. San Jacinto College.
Johnson, Milo P.
The basis of the measurable institutional objectives approach to management by objectives is the college's educational philosophy. The output measures used are the units completed and grade averages. It is recognized, however, that some student learnings and support program objectives are currently unmeasurable. The Sample Class Plan for Projecting Output and Constraints is the method of setting Instructional output objectives. For this plan, each instructor selects one of his classes each semester as his sample class, and learning problems and ways of achieving objectives are discussed by the instructor and an administrator. Service function objectives are prepared by administrators and discussed with faculty-student committees. Output costs are considered in the light of learning constraints and institutional efforts to resolve them. An educational auditor is hired to sample the output statistics and interview faculty, staff and others. Copies of the Institutional Objectives Report to the Trustees are available from Mt. San Jacinto College. (KM)
