An Institutional Research for the Purpose of Measuring the Effectiveness of Instructional, Curricular, and Personnel Services to the Transfer Students at Olney Central College.
Emrick, Raymond T.
During 1971-72, graduates of Olney Central College (OCC) who had transferred to a four-year school were asked to rate OCC's instructional, curricular, and personnel services, to determine how adequately the college meets the needs of its students. Students' reactions to thirty-eight statements about the college were registered on a Likert-type rating scale. Responses were received from 133 (51.4 percent) of the 259 students who received the survey instrument--respondents had all graduated from OCC between 1968 and 1970. Tables indicating responses to each statement are included, and implications of the results are noted. The transfer students as a group reported they were satisfied with the services at OCC. They gave a high rating to the quality of the faculty, the personnel services, and the courses offered as preparation for four-year college work. Academic advisement was not rated as highly as most areas of the instructional program. The most favorable ratings were given to the instructional faculty in the areas of subject matter expertise, teaching ability, and interest in their students. The survey instrument is appended.
