Student Follow-Up in Higher Education: A Systematic Approach. Advanced Institutional Development Program (AIDP) Two-year College Consortium, Vol. II, No. 6.
Lightfield, E. Timothy
This manual, developed by Mercer County Community College (MCCC), prescribes a step-by-step, systematic approach for conducting student follow-up surveys. As data are required from both students who graduate from the institution and from students who are classified as non-returning, follow-up procedures are listed for each separately. Types of demographic and biographic data that should be collected in both cases are also listed. Methods of tabulating the resultant survey data are suggested, as are appropriate procedures for reporting and disseminating the survey results. Appended to this publication are sample graduated student survey forms, sample non-returning student survey forms, supplementary items for the graduated student survey, and sample output of the MCCC tabulation program. It is suggested that institutions wishing to use the methods described in this manual make no modifications of the survey forms. Rather, where additional information is required, a supplemental item survey should be devised and used with the prescribed forms. (JDS)
