Quality Indicators. An Approach to Measuring Program Success.
Palola, Ernest G.
How is the concept "success" applied in postsecondary education? After a review of publications, case studies conducted at Empire State College's New Models for Career Education program are presented. NMCE is a career program that combines on the job experience with academic study and is based on students' needs, plans, and aspirations, and the career training requirements as students see them. A multiple perspective view of educational program effectiveness and success is found to have merit. Persons attempting to decide on the success of an educational program should: (1) look at a variety of data; and (2) weigh data against the interests of administrators, faculty, students, state officials, and taxpayers.
