Project 30: An Evaluation and Review. A Project Designed to Strengthen and Support Minority Students Matriculating in Mathematics, Science, Technology, and the Allied Health Fields at Sacramento City College.
Kinnebrew, Elbert L.
Since fall 1972, Sacramento City College has operated a pilot project designed to provide minority students with extra tutorial and laboratory assistance and, thereby, to encourage them to pursue careers in mathematics, science, technology, and the allied health fields. The primary focus of the program was placed on one-to-one tutorials intended to remedy the problems faced by minority students in their regular classes. To this end, a laboratory was established centrally in the science complex and was staffed by a project director and six qualified peer tutors. In order to evaluate the success of the pilot project, questionnaires were distributed to students who had participated in the program and to minority students who had enrolled in mathematics, science, technology, or allied health courses, but who had not participated in the program. The responses from Asian, black, Mexican-American, and Native American students are presented separately. As a result of this evaluation study, it is recommended that the pilot phase of this program be ended and that the program be continued on a regular basis. The questionnaires are appended, as are descriptions of the auto-tutorial aids currently utilized in the program laboratory. (DC)
