Three JCCC Career Student Follow-ups, 1974.
Tatham, Elaine L.; And Others
This document presents the findings of three state-required career student follow-up studies--a one year follow-up of 1972-73 students, a three year follow-up of 1970-71 students, and an initial placement (six months) follow-up of 1973-74 students--in the form of two reports. Ninety-one, 94, and 99 percent of the former graduates and nongraduates with marketable skills were contacted by telephone. Of the 176 students one year out of training, 78 percent were employed in their program area; nine percent were in school. Eighty-three percent rated their program good to excellent. Their mean average salary was $799/month. Seventy percent of the 47 students three years out of training were employed in their program area; 96 percent rated their program highly. In the initial placement follow-up for the 202 students leaving the college in 1973-74, it was found that 84 percent had program-related positions, 38 percent were in school, and 96 percent rated their programs excellent or good. Data is analyzed separately for career students who were also members of the hearing-impaired program. All data is presented by program area on various tables. The telephone survey is appended with additional questions related to specific program areas. (MJK)
