A Report of the Satisfaction of Recent Vocational-Technical Graduates with the Academic Counseling and Registration Assistance Received.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Leeward Community Coll.
In fall 1974, 126 students who had been enrolled in vocational-technical programs at Leeward Community College during the 1973-74 academic year, and who had petitioned for graduation, were sent follow-up surveys. This report details their reactions to academic counseling and registration assistance. The 96 responses represent a 76 percent response rate. Seventy of the respondents had received the associate degree, and 26 had received a certificate. The vocational areas that were most heavily represented were secretarial science and accounting. About 20 percent of the students felt that they did not need counseling, but over 40 percent reported that they could have benefited from additional counseling. Most of the respondents were not veterans, but those who were felt that the veterans' counseling program was either good or bad improved subsequent to their graduation. About 13 percent of all respondents felt that the quality of academic counseling was excellent, and 30 percent rated it as good. However, about 10 percent of the respondents said it was poor. Most of the students felt that the college was meeting their registration assistance needs, but many noted a need for more vocational offerings in the evening. Data are tabulated, and the survey instrument is appended, along with comments of the respondents. (NHM)
