Institutional Self Study, Spring Semester, 1973.
Maloney, Michael J.; Agnew, Bonnie A.
The Institutional Self Study (ISS) was administered to randomly selected students at Oakton Community College (OCC) in May 1972 and again in May 1973. Results were compared with results obtained in a national administration of the same instrument to community college students. Results indicated that OCC students valued academic and vocational goals higher than social and nonconventional goals. They valued vocational and nonconventional goals lower, and they valued academic goals significantly higher than did students in the national sample. OCC students rated their instructors significantly higher than did students at other public institutions. They rated campus science laboratories as adequate and felt that library materials were accessible; however, students from the other two-year colleges rated library materials as more accessible. OCC students were more satisfied with their speaker policy, their opportunity to participate in the making of college policy, and their student conduct rules than students at other two-year colleges. OCC students rated non-academic facilities and programs (i.e., campus food service, recreational facilities, social programs, and the campus newspaper) negatively. (DC)
