Illinois Public Community College Statewide Occupational Student Follow-Up Study: Phase 1 Preliminary Report.
Illinois Community Coll. Board, Springfield.
The first statewide followup study of occupational/career education students in Illinois community colleges was developed through the efforts of the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) Research Advisory Council and the special Occupational Followup Subcommittee. The Phase 1 data for the followup study consisted of reporting student characteristics. Participation in the followup study consisted of all 38 community college districts in Illinois and 46 community colleges involving 27,663 students. The preliminary data for Phase 1 of the study were reported by each of the Illinois public community colleges and based on the number of new fall 1974 students in the occupational/career program. The reports classified these students by their curriculum, type of attendance (45.3 percent full-time, 54.7 percent part-time), sex (49.7 percent male, 50.3 percent female), and original intent for enrolling at the college (56.2 percent preparation for employment in career areas, 21.2 percent skill improvement). The preliminary report shows that although there are slight differences between the original intent of male and female students, significant differences occur between full-time and part-time students. It is concluded that followup data will be needed and can be accomplished through proposed phases 2 (withdrawal analysis) and 3 (followup and employer surveys). Appended materials include sample report forms and a standardized survey instrument. (BP)
