The Management, Administrative Profile System.
Valencia Community Coll., Orlando, FL.
The Management, Administrative Profile System (MAPS) was developed to permit assessment of a college on three levels. The detailed discussion of each level is preceded by a general process model which identifies the specific instrumentation, available options, and the major action steps associated with a particular level of assessment. Level "A" reveals to management and/or administration the degree to which individuals, departments, or the college as a whole are involved in any particular program; it also embraces cost analysis. Level "B" has been designed to show the degree to which management, administration, faculty, and staff agree on work objectives and implementation. Level "C" is designed to guide the data gathering efforts of MAPS' users and enhance the application of systems analysis. The primary intent of MAPS is to provide timely, accurate information in sufficient quantity to enable appropriate action. It is primarily a descriptive rather than a prescriptive system. This document describes the program and guides implementation. Illustrations and instrumentation of the model are appended. (Author/MJK)
