Perelle, Ira B.
This study examines student outcomes in the seven curriculum programs (chemical technology, dental hygiene, dental laboratory, medical laboratory, nursing, opthalmic dispensing, and radiologic technology) of the Division of Allied Health and Natural Sciences at New York City Community College. The following variables are examined: student background, college grades, performance on certification and licensure examinations, student perceptions of the college experience, faculty perceptions of student development, employer perceptions of student performance, and student and faculty perceptions of the Allied Health Learning Center. These factors in single and combined form are used to evaluate student performance during three stages of the student's relationship with the College: pre-tenure, tenure, and post-tenure. Ten different questionnaires, sent to graduates, current students, faculty, and employers, and the official college records were used to compile the information in this report. Data are presented in 66 tables, and the questionnaires are appended. The research design Provided in this investigation can be generalized to studies conducted by researchers in other institutions.
