Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Community Junior Colleges.
Regulations of the Florida State Board of Education require that each community college district board of trustees provide placement services and maintain followup studies. This document provides the guidelines for these activities. Each college shall designate an officer who shall be responsible for providing placement services and for maintaining placement statistics. Services shall be made available for 3 years to every student who completes a certificate or degree program, and on a one-time basis for students who leave school having completed two terms as a full-time student. In order to ascertain the effectiveness of programs, followup studies shall: (1) identify program goals and objectives; (2) devise and utilize assessment instruments and procedures; (3) draw conclusions relative to the adequacy of program goals and objectives and make changes as are appropriate; and (4) draw conclusions relative to the effectiveness of the several components of the programs, including support programs, in meeting goals and objectives and make such changes as are appropriate. Reports shall also be made to the board concerning students who have declared their educational objectives and leave prior to their attainment. Report writing guidelines and questionnaire forms are appended. (Author/MJK)
