The Institutional Research Practitioner: Problems, Processes and Procedures.
Brown, Charles I., Ed.
This booklet contains the proceedings of the first annual meeting of the North Carolina Association for Institutional Research (NCAIR). Contents include an address by the president of NCAIR concerning "Changing Demands on the Institutional Research Practitioner". He points out that in the relatively short life span of Institutional Research, several changes in demand have come about. One of these changes is a compression of time. This address also contains a summary of the impact of these changes on the institutional researcher and suggestions on how to cope with them. A second address, by an administrator, is entitled "What You Can Do For Us," and suggests that professionals in the field on institutional research make a serious attempt at meaningful communication with faculty and administration of their institutions to clarify the function of institutional research. Other entries include "abstracts and extracts" of workshop presentations conducted during the 2-day meeting. The topics covered were: research on a developmental studies program and its effect on student achievement, a plan for appraising and projecting market conditions and their influence on the employment opportunities for graduates of technical and vocational programs, a system for evaluating, teaching effectiveness, and a discussion concerning the implementation of the Resource Requirements Prediction Model 1.6 (RRPM 1.6).
