A Student Evaluation of Counseling and Library Services, Student Activities and College Publications, Including Student Preferences for Alternative Class Schedules.
Quanty, Michael; And Others
The Johnson County Community College (JCCC) Office of Institutional Research conducted a study in spring 1976 designed to measure student opinion in relation to five areas: counseling services, selected aspects of the instructional program, student activities, library services, and college publications. Demographic information and preferences for various class schedules were also sought. The survey sample and respondents included 600 students from 38 randomly selected credit classes on campus. Survey results indicated that the "typical" JCCC student was under 24 years of age (64.5%), single (62.3%), had not attended another college (63.8%), and was employed (72.9%) at least part-time while taking 10 or more hours of classes (72.9%). JCCC students were attending college either to transfer to a four-year college (37.6%), or to prepare for a job or job improvement (35.9%), and planned to complete an Associate of Arts degree (61.1%). Detailed results of student opinion in the areas surveyed are analyzed, and tables displaying the survey data for each of the five areas are included. The findings are compared to previous JCCC surveys, and to comparable national studies. Recommendations, based on data analysis, are made to improve the delivery of institutional services to students. The four questionnaires used in this study are appended. (JDS)
