Research in the Virginia Community College System; An Annotated Bibliography, Topical Listing, and College Listing of Research Projects Conducted at Virginia Community Colleges through July 15, 1974.
Trufant, John E.; Kelly, Sarah J.
This document provides a means of improving and formalizing the communication of institutional research conducted at the 23 colleges in the Virginia Community College System. Over 160 reports are arranged in three sections. The first section annotates 44 of the studies, which were selected on the basis of anticipated interest, quality of study design, narrative sections on findings, and program innovation. Annotations are arranged by nine topics: follow-up studies, experimental studies, innovations, community, counseling and guidance, student profiles, instruction, administration, faculty and staff. The second section lists all studies by topic, and the third lists all studies by college. The types of materials included vary considerably, from sophisticated experimental designs to casual descriptive studies, from routine reports to innovative proposals. Series of routine reports are compiled separately in the topical listing. Although some reports did not seem to be in the "research" category at all, for the most part the listing is inclusive, not exclusive. However, the file from which this document was prepared does not necessarily contain all of the reports conducted by the 23 colleges. (NHM)
