Perspectives on the College Level Examination Program. A Series of Papers Presented to the Missouri Association of Junior Colleges.
Alfred, Richard L., Ed.
In this series of papers, primary consideration is given to manifest (expressed) and latent (unexpressed) perspectives on the College Level Examination Program held by faculty, administrators, and students in the Junior College District of Metropolitan Kansas City, Missouri. The first paper, "The Pros and Cons of CLEP: A Student Personnel Perspective," describes the historical development of the CLEP and relates key elements of the program to current issues in higher education. Consideration is also given to the presentation of basic methodological constructs that were used in the development of CLEP. Paper 2, "A Student Perspective on the CLEP Program," deals with the conceptual foundation of CLEP in terms of Maslow's theory of self-actualization. Paper 3, "A Faculty Perspective on CLEP," serves as an overview of faculty perceptions of CLEP. The final paper, "Functions and Dysfunctions of the College Level Examination Program for Institutional Subcultures in the Community College," projects manifest and latent perspectives of CLEP into the political milieu of institutional governance--the major problems and concerns related to CLEP perceived by institutional subcultures are discussed, and a model pertaining to alternative strategies for organization and implementation of CLEP is presented.
